EG8 1.5 Single Cam Fuel Injected Vtec Civic ....i checked my power steering fluid in the car & realised that the previous owner used transmission Oil in the pump....can this cause any harm to the PUMP or anything else....?

Yes i would have it flushed as soon as possibnle...Acura/Honda takes a special kind of powersteering fluid...its not red its clear...most good lube shops will have them so if they service these cars. Or a parts store, or your honda dealership.Have it flushed at the dealership or if you know of an honest lube shop near you

Both are hydraulic fluid and should be compatible. Most GM American cars use Dextron ATF (automatic transmission fluid) in their power steering.
