How do i change the gear oil for a toyota yaris 2007? i'm having difficulty changing my gears

There should be a drain plug on the bottom of the gearbox. Unlike engine oil, usually the filling location for gear oil is on the side of the gearbox. You use a syringe or a specialised tool to get the gearoil in, and when it gets up to the level of the hole it's full. However I do agree with agent91 that your clutch is a more likely cause. there are some tests you can do to check the health of your clutch e.g. drive along in 4th at 40, clutch down, rev to redline, snap out clutch keeping your foot on throttle, and if revs don't drop to the correct speed in around a second you're slipping.
