Brakes problem
2007 Saturn Vue 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic

the person who changed my oil-put power steering fluid in my brake reservoir to top it off. When tested the brake fluid contained 4% of the contaminant. My question--how long/miiles would it take until the brakes failed? The temperatures during this period were between 20 and 90 degrees F(feb to june in Indiana).

Do you

Hi there,

you will need to flush this out ASAP, as the rubbers in the seals of the brake system are not compatible with this type of oil and brake failure could occur with out much notice.
