Auto trans fluid?

I have a 2008 5speed auto transmission and I am adding trans fluid but I am a little shy. I used toyota brand ATF WS but they are closed, is it ill advised to add some of a different company?

well, I moved my truck to a more level ground and added all the rest of the trans fluid the dealer told me I would need. On the level ground it is not coming out of the overflow hole but was earlier in my driveway. My driveway is slightly inclined.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Well, it i did not drive it today and after I added 2qts it is still not coming out of the overflow hole. Dealer told me I only needed 1.7qts. I ran it for 30-45 secs and moved through all gears and then tried the drive to neutral back and forth to check the temp but the temp gauge never came on. thats what I was told to do but Im clueless. How do check the temp?
