Steering fluid was accidently aded to brake resevoir. Brakes began to stick. Resevoir drained, brake fluid added and lines flushed with new fluid into old calipers which were aso bled. Brakes still stuck, calipers replaced but problem still exist.

It sounds like all the brake rubbers are starting to react with the oil, they will swell up and cause caliper pistons to bind, the only safe thing to do is to totally re build and flush the entire brake system, Master cylinder and all calipers, don't mess with brakes, do the lot and be safe.

Thanks so much, I suspected a total cleaning and seal replacement but hoped for less trouble and expense.
