Hello, I have attached a file, You have a little reading to do. Its not a dipstick as once was like you know, You now need a hand pump to refill, Most all parts stores sell a hand pump to put fluid back in, To check level is a bit different and explained in this file, I also included link showing an example of the hand pump, A parts store can help decide what type you need. Also, you need to use Toyota fluid. There are alternatives but I cant say which is better or worse as Toyota fluid is the required, You can search Toyota trans fluids and decide on that. I know Valvoline Maxx Life is a good one. I cant call right now and a call is hard as I have to send written info
