What kind of in-breds work at that shop?Clown

I wouldn't drive it 10 ft if there really was 75W-90 in there. 

You could drain some out into a container and see how it pours compared to 10W-30. 

Like the other guy said, usually gear oil has a pretty sharp smell to it...that's the other sign.

(Hopefully they just clicked on the wrong drop down item on the shop computer menu and they really did use 10W-30.)..but if you think by looks or smell the wrong oil is in there....

I'd go to Walmart get a jug of 10W-30 a new oil filter and change it right where it is parked.

Then I'd go back to the shop with the Walmart receipt and talk to the manager. They should refund the original oil change cost and your Walmart change.

Either that car is reading 80 psi at idle or the top end is getting no oil when it is cold, way too thick to run in your engine.
