Re: my 1999 hyundai elantra 1st and 2nd slipping in...
You should have some type of guarantee from a car lot or dealer. If private seller, then go to a reliable trans shop and have them change the trans filter and fluid. Its not good to have oil there, but it is not caustic and a trans shop should do ya.

No dipstick on those Audi (ZF) transmission.
Put car with cold engine on hoist, engine running, someone shifting through gears.
At the same time, remove the large drain plug (17mm Allen IIRC), then pump transmission fluid in (need to fiddle the hose all the into the slot inside the hole) in until it starts running out.
Put plug back in.
The hotter the transmission, the less fluid you can fill. Official transmission fluid temp is 40 degrees C (use VCDS to monitor temperature if you think it might be too hot). But generally better results at lower temps (not FREEZING cold, but 20-40 C (60-100 F) works better.
Please follow the experts recommendation . In Automatic transmissions are not using thick oils. Only special and manufacturers recommended oils are used. If you will not change it you will come surely to an unexpected and not worthy situation. Proceed as you been told . Renew the oil and filter and I again inform you to use the specified oil from manufacturer and nothing else.Also it is better to put into your automatic gear box if you can find the " Wynn's Automatic Transmission Treatment. "It will help a lot.
indicates that the oil cooler in the radiator has split and water filled the transmission
if that is the dip stick you referred to, the fix is a new radiator and a professional flush from an automatic transmission specialist shop
Two things: #1 someone has overfilled it by mistake thinking they were putting oil in the engine. Yes I have seen this. #2 The transmission cooler in the radiator could be leaking antifreeze into the transmission through the cooling line raising the fluid level. I would look for milk shake foam on the dip stick and make sure you check trans in park and not neutral.
white smoke more usually anti-freeze than oil which creates black smoke. however unburned gas can also appear white, and there may be a vacuum line connection to the transmission which, if corrupted can even put transmission fluid into the exhaust. i think i would want a dealer service department diagnosis on this. if someone suggested changing fluids as a remedy i think i would avoid letting him put a wrench to the vehicle. a dealer may be more expensive up front but they have a better overall record as to getting the right problem the first time.
It may be the differential and not the axle it uses its own oil and not the transmission fluid the transmission can show to be full but the differential could be low when ever an axle is taken out and then put back that can happen it has its own fill and drain plugs that have nothing to do with the transmission fluid
Engine and transmission are completely sealed off from one another. No way changing the engine oil will affect the transmission unless a brain sturgeon put engine oil into the transmission by mistake. If you did the service, you know that didn't happen.
