Question about Cars & Trucks
Brake fluid contaminated by transmission fluid,what is to be done to fix this problem?
I have very bad news brake system + atf = complete brake system replacement. the rubber o-rings and seals that are used in brake systems that are compatible with brake fluid are absolutely not compatible with any other fluid in a vehicle. if you haven\'t used your brakes at all since the atf was put in then suck it out remove and clean brake master reservoir. but if you\'ve driven it and used the brakes it\'s all got to go except the steel brake lines which can be flushed out once you remove the rest of components. and I mean all of them calipers, hoses, master cylinder, abs hydraulic unit it\'s all junk now.

FIRST YOU HAVE TO UNBOLT THE TRANSMISSION PAN ON THE BOTTOM OF THE TRANSMISSION. THERE WILL BE FLUID IN IT SO BE CAREFUL NO TO SPILL IT. AFTER THE PAN IS OFF YOU WILL SEE THE FILTER ON THE BOTTOM OF THE VALVE BODY. IT MAY BE BOLTED ON AS WELL. HOPE THIS HELPS. LET ME KNOW. GOOD LUCK

I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. I TOOK THE AIR FILTER HOSE OFF THE CARBARATOR AND ADDED CARBARATOR CLEANER. PUT IT BACK ON, AND WORKED. TRY THAT.

check your calipers to make sure the bleeder is on the top! If not it will create a pocket of air in the chamber that won't bleed out!
