Here is the answer that you are looking for: Never.
The auto trans fluid in a Prius is what we call "World Spec", and never needs to be changed. Why? Because the Prius trans fluid is not used for hydraulic pressure or cooling the ATF fluid due to the lack of the aforementioned hydraulic pressure. All that the ATF does is perform a "lubrication" function. As long as there is no contamination of the fluid (such as being in a flood), do not bother with it.

the MAF sensor is between the air filter and throttle body. the idle controll is at the throttle body.
Its located on the throttle body on the left side. Follow the air intake to an intake manifold which sits on top of the throttle body.

when you open your hood look in the back of the motor on the left side.. you should see a stick with a circle on the end of it for your finger have you vehicle running warmed up that means let it run for 10 or 15 min. and then pull the stick out.. wipe it off real good. stick it back in all the way.. pull it back out and hold it horizontally and check it.. it's sometimes hard to read because it has bubbles on it.. try it a couple of times to get an accurate reading good-luck ray

Hello, a sidenote on how new your car is I would not worry about checking your transaxle fluid at the current time. You do the above following information to check your fluid and a good rule of thumb is to not work under a car while it's running. You can check the level by the old forefinger or pinky trick and if you can feel the fluid in the transaxle with your finger the level is fine. I would highly recommend however to check your fluid with your dipstick. If your vehicle does not have one you will have to run through the steps above and check the fluid with a mirror so you do not burn your fingers. I hopes this information solves your problem. Also a sidenote, dealerships have recalled your vehicle for a transaxle leak if yours is leaking do the check above and tighten the fill plug to a torque specification which can be found in a Haynes or Chilton Auto Repair Manual. If your vehicle is under warranty I would have your dealership correct this maintenance issue for you.
Wipe the dipstick clean with the rag or paper towel. Insert the dipstick back into the reservoir. Wait 3-5 seconds. Pull the dipstick straight out.
