Well, I change my oil over the weekend. Got rid of the "dino juice" and went back with Mobil 1 synthetic alang ith a Mobil 1 filter. I didn't see any of that tell-tale milky color in my old oil while dumping, so that's a good sign. I did, however, see what appeared to be rust on the top part of my power steering pump tank. I got a turkey baster, sucked out all of the oild fluid I could, and replaced with fresh fluid. I thought I'd do this a couple of more times within the next week-two weeks.
Looking over my tranny though, I think I'd be better of taking it to a shop where they can put it on a rack.

I had a similiar flooding experience years ago in TN while driving my 39 2wd Dak. V6 5-speed and water up to the headlights while moving. I had NO water in any fluids, but I changed the differential fluid just to be sure. Nothing else had any fluid in it. The manual transmissions are sealed. Unless you had a pre-existing leak from (IE) the seal at the output end of the transmission, I wouldn't worry about it. The power steering fluid isn't sealed air tight, but if there isn't any added volume at the fluid box, I wouldn't worry. Hydrolic systems tend to push water out on their own in my experiences. Otherwise I would just check my fluids frequently for the next few months.
