    Have you looked at the owner's manual? In my view changing fluids will not hurt anything but make sure to get it done by a dealership. You really don't want to use cheap/fake transmission oil. That can cause some serious issues.
    Even if you are on the right track, you will get run over if you just sit there.

    Prius takes WS, the transmission is not actually a proper CVT, its a couple of motor generators in there and the oil is used to cool them mostly. You need a thin flowing stout ATF for that job, Toyota used to specify T-IV but have updated to WS.

    Any other fluid that needs to be replaced?
