Any reason why the oil smelled awful? Almost burnt?
The rear axle oil in my FJ was like that, but at 1,600 km. Could be excess heat in the rear axle, a finishing compound left behind on the R&P, poor quality factory oil, many other reasons. My front axle was much cleaner and my TC was clear

When I changed the gear oil again, it was much cleaner. When I checked it again, it had remained clean
