It doesn't harm anything and is no different than the "Leak seal" products on the market.My Dad built and drag raced cars and told me this trick years ago.Brake fluid swells the seals and works great!I've had 3 RMS leaks and fixed them all this way.

I dont know if i'd call that fixed but it could be temporary solution. Have you ever kept a jeep long enough to find out?
