I know it sounds idiot but I accidently did it when I was sleepy in the morning. I topped off the brake fluid with steering fluid when it was on ADD level. it's probably about a half a coke can. Is it going to be okay until I get a brake service? or could it screw anything up because the possible volume difference.
thanks in advance

Get your brake fluid flushed as soon as possible. Read a mechanics advice here: trustmymechanic*com/reservoir.html

Steering fluid in brake system.

Any oil based product in the brake system will cause every rubber part to swell and turn to goo. Most brake fluids are Glycol based. I work in an oil analysis lab and we get about one of these samples a month, some guy at a lube shop tops off the Brake reservoir with power steering fluid Yes get it out ASAP
