Get to a gas station and tell them to check your oil, look where they pull the dip stick from.

The Toyota fielder (new model) is a sealed transmission with no dip stick. It was meant to be " good for life" according to Toyota.Changing the transmission fluid in Tdad is problematic as not much meachanics know about it.....if you do know of any1 plz share.

The Fielder does not have a sealed Transmission. It does not have a dip stick but has DRAIN plug and a FILLER plug. It takes just under 2 Litres of GLI 75W90 GL4 gear oil.

It is not sealed for life. it is recommended to change the Transmission oil at 64000 km. The DRAIN plug is 24mm plug can be found near the bottom and the 24mm filler plug is accessable from the engine compartment.

The easiest way to access the filler plug without removing the plastic tray underneath is to undo it from under the bonnet.

Use a 1/2 drive, 24mm socket, a 4 inch extension and a Ratchet. The filler plug is near the bottom on the left hand side and can be accessed and undone easily with the Ratchet,extension and socket without removing anything else.

The car does not even need to be jacked up.
just make sure that the car is on level ground so that it is refilled to the correct height

It may take more time to fill the transmission unless you make up a hose and small funnel.

Open the Bonnet, Remove the filler plug with the tools. lie on the ground, place some cardboard under the drain plug and a clean container to hold 2 litres of oil.
Remove the plug and let the oil drain out.
Leave it to drain until no more oil drips out.
Clean the drain plug and refit it tightly.

Move the cardboard and oil container slightly until it is underneath the drain plug. you can check this by looking down from under the bonnet.

Find a piece of clean plastic hose or rubber hose that is just the right size to fit into the filler hole. You will need a piece about 400 to 500mm long.

Find a a small funnel and fit the top end of the funnel into the hose. Then bend the hose near the bottom so that it fits into the filler hole - push it well in.
Next take your 1 Litre oil bottle, hold the funnel up, and squeeze the oil into the funnel until the bottle is empty. If the hose is not loose in the filler hole no oil should leak out out.
Take the second 1 Litre bottle of oil and also squirt it into the funnel until it is NEARLY empty.
leave the hose in until all the oil has drained from the tube and gone in.

Remove the hose from the filler plug and a small amount of oil will drip out if there is enough oil. If it does not drip out, put the hose back in and put the rest of the oil in. When there is enough oil it will drip out slightly until it is level with the bottom of the plug. When it has stopped dripping, wipe the filler plug and refit the plug with the socket extension and ratchet.

Very easy.

My comments above relate to a Manual transmission only.
You did not say whether your car is a Manual or Automatic.
If it is not a Manual Transmission it will have a CVT ie a Continuously variable Transmission and will require special CVT oil.
