Q: POWER STEERING FLUID IN MASTER CYLINDER on 1991 Chevrolet Caprice

Edit
AFTER FINDING OUT I PUT WRONG FLUID IN MASTER CYLINDER, CAR STARTED ACTING FUNNY. CAR MOVES WHEN COLD, BRAKES GET HARD, CAR WON'T ACCELERATE PASS 30MPH, THEN IT STOPS MOVING. 2-3 HOURS LATER CAR WILL MOVE. WHAT SHOULD I DO

Sounds like you will need to replace...nearly everything that is rubber....all seals, hoses, through the whole system. Oil contamination in your brake system is absolutely catastrophic, and what you are experiencing right now is showing clearly that the oil has reached critical areas.
a related question...Just brought my T & C in to get this done due to petroleum < probably PS fluid> in the brake lines. What would...or should...be the estimated cost of such a procedure? My dealer gave me a quote but it seems astronomical !
