The lube you can use is 25wt shock oil purchased from an RC car shop.  I would wipe the gun down and make sure all parts are moving smoothly and have a light coating of lube without any dirt or debris that may be attracted by the oil.  If the gun still vents after this I would consider sending the gun in for a repair.  There are a small number of ATPs that lubing will not fix and will require repair out of the thousands sold to date.

Hope this helps.

I wouldn't recommend it.  And since it's really cheap, I would buy some 25wt if all you have is 60wt

You can use it without causing damage to the gun but it may be too thick for the gun to cycle normally.

Those are hard to find in terms of availability.  Most places I have checked, both Asian and US sellers, are always out of stock.
