so i am guessing 140,000miles with factory diff oil is bad. is it the diff that causes clicks when your on first gear or is that the torque converter?
Is it a clicking you can feel on the center console when taking off? Mine just started doing that. I suspect one of the flex discs, probably front.

.

When i changed mine i was sure i would cry at the black syrup that would come out. last change has been 100k ago and ~10 years.

but what came out was the cleanest, freshest smelling gear oil i've ever drained.
Why should it not be so? It's pretty much sealed in there, and there is no combustion to pollute the oil.
