welcome to the forum, brown gunge?? i would guess it could do with a new oil & filter,when was it last changed?
if it is a light coloured gunge, like salad cream you may have water leaking into the engine via the head gasket, check the radiator resevoir for signs of oil , like foam. But as you describe as brown i just imagine that it is old oil that has got hot from when it was low, it just needs a flush out and oil change(& plus a new filter) cheap fix too
