You want the good news first or the bad news? Well the good news is that the hydraulic fluid reservoir is independent of anything else... does not combine with brakes or anything. The bad news is.. how much water? It can be sucked out with a power tool made for just that purpose, to withdraw fluids from power steering reservoirs and such. Or even a turkey baster will pull it out, it does not hold a lot. But it does need to be removed from reservoir and any residual water that is in the lines and fan driver might be ok... or might have to be done 2X or 3X. And use MerconV ATF ... as for the strawberry milkshake it is supposed to be red/pink normally.. but no foam
