Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My son went to top off brake fluid in 2014 impala.  
Accidentally put power steering fluid in resevoir.
Then drove it literally 300 ft to garage.  Can I use a
turkey baster to suck it out ot do I  have to get the
whole system flushed?

Take all the fluid out of the reservoir and replace with the correct stuff. I doubt there will be a problem.

I agree with F_O_R. Suck the fluid out and replace it. Also it is usually not necessary to top off the brake fluid as the fluid level goes down as the brake pads wear. Usually when the brakes wear out there is sufficient fluid left in the reservoir at the proper safe amount. Only add fluid if the level is below the "low" or add indicator. If you regularly have to add fluid, then you have a leak that needs attention.
