i was told that i could use transmission fluid for break fluid and now my breaks dont want to work and i dont got money to have a machanic fix it what can i do?????
No you CAN'T use ATF as brake fluid. Unfortunately damage is already happening. This is going to get expensive to have it done right. You can try flushing the entire system, but suck the fluid out of the master cylinder first, then proceed with the flushing if it will flush, if the seals have already swelled up and started deteriorating it may not flush at all. But be prepared for the worst.
Yea you just ruined your entire brake system. The Trans fluid swells all rubber components aND pretry much ruins it. Proper fix is a new master cylinder, all new hoses, new calipers/wheel cylinders, new combination valve and new whatever abs components are in line. the only things reused are the steel brake lines and they are thoroughly flushed with compressed air and cleaner and then more compressed air. Never substitute fluids. Your car is going to have to be towed into a shop. Im an ASE certified mechanic
Oops! That is going to be expensive. Don't short cut the repairs as your life could depend on it.
