Gearbox problems.....?

Hi folks,
This is a more complex question so ill start with a simple sympton.

My gear box doesnt feel very "precise" to say the least.
Often if its in nutural and the car is on an incline upwards and pointing forwards the gear leaver will fall backwards into 3rd gear if the engine isnt running or just sit against it if running.

The car makes an awfull rattle/vibration sound if the gear leaver falls backwards as described above as the exhorst is then touching a gear seletion rod.

Ill not go any further yet but does this sound familure at all?
Is my gearbox just rubbish?

Are there any known and easy steps to promote a healthier gearbox which will eliminate the basics? (i.e. changing gear oil or replacing a simple part)

Overall the gearbox doesnt feel very good at all.


Cheers
Jonathan

You could try finding one at a scrappy and save some headaches later on.

You can get an oil thickening additive that will get you a few extra miles. Try Halfrauds.
Sawdust works as well
