First time we've come across something like this... as we pumped it out, we saw that it was kinda slimy like a gel rather than just thick oil. It was like thick snot.

I'll see about getting a pic or video my dad took. This is what we used. Always made good products:

Might have been a high weight blend. The stuff in my ranger (gets ABUSED) was almost too thick to fill up the rear end I had to use an electric pump.

it never got below 40F that morning, not sure what the phase change temp is for heavier oils. it didn't wax up and become opaque like diesel does when i gells up. it was still clear, and pumpable which was strange lol! globs of snot plopping out haha!

How long until you compare it to semen?

Stringy petroleum product? Something mixed in with it, maybe limited slip additive?

that's something i'd thought of, maybe just another additive for this or that, but i couldn't imagine it doing that though!

it's just basic gear oil best i know. i'll have to check that out when i get back over to the shop

If you really care, heat some of the gel fluid up and see if it thins out. If it does. Most likely an additive. If not, interesting...

i kinda care, cause we had to go ahead and use it in a truck lol! matter fact, i'm thinking about dipping into that case soon to see. the temp was 130F or so after the 150 mile trip back. it must be working just fine, cause i checked it a week ago and it was 110 after 6 miles of city driving

Gearing is pretty durable, the oil is almost not important as long as its there. One time we lost all the seals on a race trucks rear end. Jammed every oil we had in there to keep it topped off. Started packing bearing grease and WD40 into the housing and the gearing survived the 145 mile off-road race. its still in the truck now actually, with new seals. Lol

Yeah, I'd throw some 85w or 90w in there, put a new gasket on the cover and run it. If you ever blow up a rear end, they are LOUD but still limp-home-able most of the time. Itll sound like a low flying spaceship at speed, unless you knock off a tooth, then it'll go CLUNK CLUNK.... Still will drive though. Only once have my friends and I blown a rear end to where we couldnt move the truck. But at that point, the rear end wasn't even attached anymore! haha

So that's your new gear oil? For some reason I was thinking it was your old stuff.
If it was the new stuff, maybe head back to tractor supply and look at another 5 gallon pail to see if it's the same.
