Accidentally put power steering fluid in the master cylinder (the brake thingie) and the brakes are mushy do you have to bleed the brake lines to get it out?
I found conflicting answers which is correct?
"They are both hydraulic fluid so you won’t destroy the whole system like some of these people said… you still need to have it flushed and filled with the proper fluid ASAP though. It will hurt nothing. If the question was reversed, you would have a problem. Brake fluid is corrosive…not power sterring fluid."
"Power steering fluid will cause the rubber parts in your brake system to swell up. Flush out the power steering fluid, and just to be safe, change your brake hoses."
