This is likely an expensive repair. You may be able to get away with simply replacing the fluid in the reservoir, and bleeding the brakes, but you may end up replacing many of your brake parts, as the steering fluid may have attacked the rubber parts.

Clutch always engaged


Well, if the clutch master cyl is empty the clutch will not disengage.
And if it is empty there is a leak.
Possible someone put transmission fluid into the master which would probably destroy the seals.
There should be a brake master cyl and a clutch master cyl next to each other on the firewall.
I would check the clutch master cyl next.

Brakes and power steering


Check to see if the belt is still turning the p/s pump. I'm betting it is but it won't hurt. Check to see if the power steering fluid is full. If it is empty than you need to figure out where it is leaking. Could be the pump, hoses, steering gear/rack and pinion, or the hydro booster. If it is not emptythan remove the belt and pull out of the power steering pump pulley. If it pulls out of the pump replace the pump. Pretty common with newer gm vehicles. Make sure you post a Year, make, model, and engine size? This always makes it easier to help you out!

It's possible you overfilled the power steering reservoir or perhaps spilled some that leaked down on the exhaust manifold. That would cause a lot of smoke until it burned off.

You will have a leak from the pump, pressure hoses or the rack. You will have to get the system washed down and inspected for the leak, most common problem is the steering rack leaking, this will leak oil onto the exhaust and cause your smoking problem, start her.

Power steering not working


The first thing you have to ask yourself is "where did the old fluid go in the first place?"

Most likely, it is leaking from the steering rack itself, and into the dust boots, which is why you can't see it.

If the system was completely empty, you will have to fill it, and turn the wheel from left to right, all the way from "lock to lock" each way. This can be hard, but that's what you have to do to get the fluid back into the system.

It "should" only take 3-4 complete turns back and forth for it to work, unless there's a major leak. Then, top off the system.

Look under the car for any signs of fluid "weeping" from out of the steering rack.
