Not in this case, but related to synthetic gear lube and leaks - blue and red RTV interacts with synthetic gear lube if used on housing or pinion gaskets. Over time the synthetic causes the RTV to separate causing the leaks. Black and silver RTV generally do not. Some types will say they are compatible with synthetic.
