I put transmission fluid in brake fluid well by mistake, now what do I do?
Suck it all out to the bottom of the reservoir, do not use the brakes, replace with brake fluid.
If you have not used the brakes since doing this, suck all the fluid out of the reservoir with a turkey baster or similar. Then soak up the remaining fluid in the reservoir with a lint free paper towel or similar and top off with the appropriate type brake fluid. The type of brake fluid required is usually on the filler cap. If you have used the brakes since doing this the car will require flushing the entire system with brake fluid to get all the contaminated fluid out of the lines and calipers.
ATF can be very damaging to rubber parts, seals and o-rings. Hopefully the contamination is contained to just the master cylinder.
Agree with Ken 100%. Get that fluid out of there ASAP.
What to do? Resolve that, from now on, you will take it to a good garage for EVERYTHING-
Thank you all for your help. I am 75 years old and from now on I will just take it to have it serviced. I was so scared so your input really helped me.
