This does'nt sound good, the jelly like oil is a sign of lack of oil changes, have you had your oil light flickering on and when you've checked the oil level it's been fine?

So the oil has been changed at least twice in its life? A victim of neglect!

Could have save a ton by doing it every 5000 miles! like said above, it needs a transplant! Good luck!
