When you talk about play,are you talking about up and down play or turning the yoke left and right.if its left and right this is normal as long as its not excessive(more than about 1/8"-2/16").if its up and down then it sounds like one of two things.either the nut that holds the yoke on to the differential pinion has loosened and needs tightening or the pinion bearing is worn out and needs either case the pinion seal will have to be changed and the fluid checked for proper level.

What kind of oil is needed in the rearend

If it did not have oil it would make the noise going straight. Check your brakes and the wheel bearings for play. Oil should be a GL5 70-90 wt gear oil.

Gear oil leaking from rear of drive shaft

You need to replace the seal for the pinion. ou need to remove the drive shaft off the pinion yoke thene you will find a big nut in the center of the yoke that has to be removed but before you remove the nut check to see if there is any kind of play on the yoke if there is play the pinion bearing will have to be replaced if that is the case your better off having a mechanic do the job. If there is no play remove the nut pull the yoke off replace the seal and reinstall in reverse order.

Leaking fluid from rear end

hello, fluid leaking out of rear end is probably the pinion shaft seal, its were the drive shaft hooks to the rearend, you have to drop drive shaft, take yoke off rearend, or if it is,more further towards the back,were wheels are, then you need axle shaft seal, you have one on both sides on the rearend, behind the drums, where the back brakes are, also look and see if its coming from back of transmission, where drive shaft goes into the transmission, see if you can tell what color fluid is, if its red, its probably rear transmission seal, where drive shaft goes into the transmission.

Oil leak at rear of gearbox it is a new exchange just fitted I also replaced the slip yoke and uni joint and fitted the genuine seal. toyota hilux with w58 5 speed

well, after all that, it should not leak a drop. if the yoke is new, then either the seal is bad/damaged or the bushing has too much play, allowing the yoke to "wobble" and the seal is unable to contain the oil. another thing to verify is that the vent is open and not plugged.
