Question about 1991 Mercury Cougar
Immediately **** out the contents of the master cylinder, replace with fresh brake fluid, and flush the system.
Flushing can be done by doing a good old fashioned manual bleeding consisting of one person opening and closing the bleeder screws and one person working the brake pedal or many shops will have a brake flush machine that will make quick work of the job.
The P/S fluid in the brake system will cause the seal to bloat and eventually fail. We see several cars every year that this happens to. If its caught early a system flush will take care of it. If ignored everything gets replaced (master cylinder, brake hoses, calipers, and wheel cylinder). We have had a few over the years that where ignored for so long that the brakes eventually locked up.
