Have you drained your MANUAL transmission, or your AUTOMATIC transmission?
I don't believe there was ever a dip stick on a manual transmission. If
you've accidentally drained your manual transmission, you will have to
locate the fill plug to refill it. You may find you have to rig a tube so
that you can raise your source above the level of the fill plug. If it was
a manual, you are not alone, others have mistaken the trans drain plug. You
can find stories of others efforts to correct on the Tacoma World Forum like

transmissions until the inner oil level reaches the fill hole's lower
And, if you are talking AUTOMATIC Transmission, well, here is another thread
on the Tacoma World Forum for that:
