Break and power steering problems

When i first picked up my jeep it had a slow leak on the breaks. When i went to move it this spring i found the jeep now has no breaks. I'm pretty new to mechanics and would like to know where to start to find the leak.

Next, the power steering also had a leak and now has no powersteering. Same question applies.

Are there common weak points where these leaks occur.

Look on the inside of each of your wheels. Do you see any areas that appear to have oil on them anywhere? If so....check out that brake caliper. If not, fill the reservoir with brake fluid and pump the brakes with the engine running. It'll eventually show itself.
