I will assume this is a manual transmission. With that said I would have your fluid level checked in it. Frequently poor or hard shifting is caused by low levels or wrong fluid. In your case I would have the level checked or possibly changed if it has never been done.

How get to P0755 fault Jaguar shift solenoid .

that fault code relates to a internal component failure inside the gearbox, or a wiring problem from the powertrain controle module to the gearbox, it all depends on the gearbox that is fitted. if the gearbox has a plastic sump pan the controle module is part of the gearbox, the shift solenoid moves a valve inside the gearbox to direct fluid pressure to the relevant servos to control gearchanges e.t.c.does the car still drive?

'93 Mazda Protege (automatic shift) shifts from 1st to 3rd, then thats it. The RPM goes 3500 and up when I drive over 45 mph. I had to stay under 65mph driving across country recently. FYI...ju

Likely a gearbox issue.
Check condition of gearbox oil. If dark red or brownish in colour, then replace oil. Remove gearbox sump and replace oil filter. When replacing filter look for metal particles in oil

If no success, or if finding large degree of chaff in gearbox sump, then likely a gearbox failure.

Manual shift is hard to shift. Also don't know how to check gearbox lubricant

Check the gearbox lubricant, good, I recommend Amsoil MT-GL4. But probably you have problems with your clutch, slave, pump or clutch disc, check for leaks on slave located on transmission if you have problems with any of this parts you will get some shift problems.

2005 Toyota Tacoma Gearbox shifting loose and unable to shift up to 1, 3, 5 and R. Clutch seems good except for shifting gear.

You may possibly have a defective clutch slave or master cylinder. Get this fixed immediately as it will cause problems with the gear box.
