I have crawled all over the engine in my 2008 Yaris w/auto trans looking for the dip stick to check the auto trans fluid level and can not find one. So conceding defeat I got out the owners manual and look there and after three reads (figuring that I have missed twice) there does not appear to be a Trans dip stick. Even the underhood picture does not show a Trans check icon; so I am at a lose. I can not believe that there is no way to check this with out going to a service facility to have it done.

Re: Check auto trans fluid level in 2008 Yaris
I don't know how many models this affects, but I had heard that some manufacturers are no longer putting in a dipstick to check automatic transmission fluid. For example, check the "Tips and Warnings" box (lower center of page) at this web site. Your car may be one of those affected. You can check with a Toyota dealer to be sure.

most vehicle auto trans are checked while the engine is running and trans is warmed up to normal operating temp. except hondas which are checked with engine off. pull out the dipstick and the fluid level should be somewhere in between the hash marks. if its low just top off a quarter quart at a time and watch the fluid residue on hash mark on the end of dipstick.
check trans. fluid level per owners manual.The high operating temperatures cause fluid to expand greatly,an over-filled transmission can actually force excess fluid out of the dip stick tube.check level with trans. hot,engine running in park on a level surface. After driving,place shifter in park,hold brake and move shifter through all gears and back to park.remove dipstick,wipe clean,re-insert and check fluid level.normally,trans fluid & filter should be changed +/- 100 k miles
With the engine and transmission at operating temperature, and on a level surface, leave the car run and pull out the dip stick marked "trans". Wipe it clean with a rag and put it back in. Pull it back out and look for the level of fluid on the end of the dip stick. It will be marked where the acceptable level of fluid is.
Check transmition fluid is via the trans dip stick located were the engine meets the tranny.. Dip stick should be labled transmition with the engine hot and car in park. pull dip stick out wipe clean. reinsert into tube fully then remove. the highest oil level is the reading level is reference to the stamped marking on the dip stick indicating fluid level "high or low"
you either have to fill it through the transmission dip stick if it is equipped with one, or you need tho crawl under the car and look at the side of the transmission and you should see a plug looking bolt which you will have to remove and fill through there till it runs out that plug hole
You have to check the fluid from the bottom on the back side of the
transmission with a special tool. So if you don't have a way of getting
under the car or have a special tool to do it with then you won't be
able to. You also have to fill the fluid using this same hole.
There is a rubber plug that is actually the dip stick. You can check out you fluid level but you have to crawl under the truck and remove the plug and there is your dip stick it is only a couple of inches long.
It's right next to the air filter and behind the radiator fan and to the right of the oil dipstick. The transmissions is black and the oils is yellow. If it's a manual, there's no dipstick there. If not check close to the forewall towards the back of the engine.
yes you add yout fluid through your dip stick. go to your auto parts store and get the auto trans fluid for fords, yes there are several different types, ford and chevy use two different types. just ask for the trans fluid for a ford auto trans
