The gear shifter does not go into gear as smoothly as it once did. What might cause of this?

Low fluid level? Maybe you have a leak.

Your reply is not helpful, since it contained no new text. So I'll answer both:
Auto: Fluid or leaking seals. Check and top up your fluid.
Manual: Worn synchros or loss of lubricant. Check your fluid, and/or change to Redline fluids.
Does this vary with ambient temperature or operating temperature?

Could it also be a slightly dragging clutch, if manual? Had this on an old Jag XJ many years ago and it was the clutch slave cylinder and also a dry spigot bush. Badger.
