Changing Fluids

I'm new to this forum. I inherited a 1998 Magnum 4x4. I was told that last summer it was run through a pretty deep creek and probably needs all the fluids changed. I got the fuel, oil and coolant taken care of. What about brake fluid and transmission fluid? Can't seem to find anywhere to drain and/or refill those. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your help and suggestions.

Welcome. The brake fluid can be changed by bleeding all the calipers until you get clean fluid to come out. The trans should have a drain plug somewhere on the bottom. Hope this helps.
