Could be that it's got 187,000+ miles on it?!
Nah, my old 1987 Ranger had that happen, and it turned out that the rear diff was leaking very slowly, and only when it got hot. So what was happening was that the gears were starting to grind under certain circumstances. I would, personally, open the hole you fill it with and check for fluid and for metal shavings. Good luck.
