I agree with RW, it won't take the heat, nor the pressure applied by the pedal and the assist. Have your brake lines purged as soon as possible. You will lose your braking ability if you don't.

ANY type of oil in the brake system is bad news, it causes the seals to swell up and fail. It is likely just on the top of the fluid in the master cylinder, since oil floats on most other liquids. My suggestion is to replace the master cylinder right away, then check out the rest of the brake system. If the fluid has been in there for any period of time replace, or rebuild the calipers and wheel cylinders(if equipped), flush the entire brake system re install parts, and bleed the system. Please, if there is any doubt rebuild/ replace all affected parts, it is not worth the chance of a collision and injury to yourself or someone else just because it might work.

needing help

Removed most if not all fluid from master and lines. Now can't seem to get the brakes to pump up. Front barkes have been bleed but the rear brake are not responding. no fluid comes out of bleeder and fluid in master cylinder stays at the same level. The fronts are bled.
