Need to bleed my brakes... I have heard that you can put some baking soda in brake fluid and this will stop rotars from going bad.

Putting ANYTHING into brake fluid is a bad idea. Contaminating the fluid can only cause problems in the long run. And since the brake fluid itself never comes into direct contact with the brake rotors, it would seem unlikely that adding it to the brake fluid could in any way protect them from going bad.

Bleed power steering/brake unit 2002 GMC Sierra 3500

The slash that you placed between the words steering/brake have me concerned. I certainly hope you did not think that these two systems are co-joined? The power steering system is a hydraulic system completely separate and isolated from the brake system. They also use two completely different types of fluid. Putting brake fluid in the power steering system would destroy it just as putting power steering fluid in the brake master cylinder will destroy it. The type(s) of rubber used in the seals for each of these systems demands they use their own fluid. Any cross-contamination will require a complete draining, cleaning, and replacement of ALL rubber components and seals. This would include the power steering pump and rack for the power steering system, and for the brake system the master cylinder, all calipers and wheel cylinder as well as the proportioning valve. If there is an ABS unit, it will need serviced as well.

1988 LeBaron. Intermittent brake failure.

Does the pedal sometimes go to the floor, with no stopping power? That is a sign of a bad brake master cylinder whose internal seals have failed, so no hydraulic power when brakes are pressed. Need to have it checked. It will only get worse until brakes fail completely.
Be sure and check the brake fluid level in the fluid reservoir. If low, check for leaks under the car. System is sealed, so no fluid should need periodically added.

Typically this may due to low brake fluid or the parking brake not disengaged completely. If you do find the your brake fluid level is low you may want to have your brakes inspected as this may be an indication that your brakes are worn and may need replaced.

Brake light came on, filled up with fluid and 3o min later i have no fluid and brakes are hard to stop,help

You need to completely inspect your brakes to find the leak. It could be the master cylinder, a brake line, a leaking connection, a leaking piston on a caliper, or a leaking wheel cylinder. All of these are fairly obvious as they will either be wet, soaked, or dripping brake fluid.

Brake pedal goes down to floor. Putting brake fluid doesn't solve problem. Vehicle must coast to a complete stop.

First look for obvious leaks under the vehicle, especially the inside area of each wheel... If you see fluid, you have either a blown cylinder seal or a bad line (check the rubber hoses to the front and back brakes too) Repair the offending part and bleed the air out of the system... (remember to clean pads or shoes if they have fluid on them)... If you see no hint of leakage anywhere, then suspect the master cylinder... if you remove the master cylinder, check and make sure that it didn't leak fluid into the brake booster diaphragm (Brake fluid will destroy the booster)... as in any repair when you open the system (lose fluid), you will need to bleed out the air to restore function... hope this helps...;-)

The red brake light on the dashboard comes on while driving and goes out intermittently while driving. what's the problem?

Should be equipped with a brake fluid reservoir low level switch. Added a little recommend brake fluid to bring the level up about 1/4" or so should likely fix it. Do not fill completely to top. Brake fluid level drops as brake pads wear down so you may want to have the brakes checked to make sure your not in need of pad replacement.

Transmission fluid in brake system

Your braking system will need to be flushed (all of the brake fluid completely removed) and refilled. If left in the braking system, the wrong fluid could end up ruining the brake calipers, brake master cylinder, rubber brake hoses, and other brake components – leading to brake failure.
