Volvo 240 Dies Shifting from Park + Brake Problems

Car dies when I shift quickly out of park… and I was about to change the rotor on the front driver’s side, unscrewed the caliper, when all the brake fluid leaked out.

I must also confess that, in my youthful excitement, I sprayed WD-40 into one of the bleeder screw holes. I was trying to clean the caliper but later found out that petroleum distillates should NEVER be used anywhere near a braking system. So my question now is, should I replace the caliper, or clean it out with brake cleaner and hope for the best?
