    noise -right get a good old fashioned grease gun and pump about at least half of this into the gearbox ,this will settle into the bottom when it gets hot and help seal up any leaks also it will quieten it down do not put sawdust in though its a old wives tale

My rover 75 1.8 club has a hydrolic clutch but find it hard to change gear mainly down shifting

decent car the rover i like them anyway,now if vehicle is going into gear ok and the pedal bite is the right height then check the gearbox oil level EP90 oil is used for this never mind this thin stuff used on modern cars its not a lot of good regardless what the designers say ,a nice bit of thick hypoid oil is the best as its a diff and gearbox unit all in in one on front wheel drive car and no lubrication around the syncros and baulk rings will cause this problem ,if after topping up the gearbox and it goes noisy then pump some LM grease into the box about a grease gun full as this will end up in the bottom of the box and help stop any leaks along the bottom gasket or the drive shafts and help quieten the box ,yes i know its a arthur dailey type trick but it works ,well what do expect from a old truck fleet fitter like myself no dealer unit changer here

On a 2.5 range rover does the coolant and gearbox oil flow through the one radiator

No the coolant radiator is a sealed system, oil and water do not mix; as far as I am aware manual gearboxes do not have coolers.

If you have oil in your coolant water this will be an engine problem. Check the engine oil is not frothy and caramel coloured.

If your gear box oil is is a brown colour or dirty looking, this is due to water ingress, either through the breather hose or seals, try changing the fluid. If you can check the seals and breaher hose.

Suggest you get a owners manual and Haynes or workshop manual.
There are plenty of free files on line, do a search on Google, Alltheweb, Lycos, etc
