How to adjust doors?

I'm having a ruff time with my driver side door shutting, it seems like i have to slam the door on my side to shut, but the passenger one is so much easier to close. what should I be adjusting?

I'm stumped.

Mine is the other way around. Drivers closes fine. Passengers you have to slam. Might help to lube the doors with some Wd40

move the door striker out a little bit at a time until it is easier. if the striker is not adjustable, then move the door hinges outward on the door a little at a time and it will get easier

I have to agree, wht lith is awesome, in anything you would use WD40, replace the WD40 with white lithium and the problem (for the most part) wont come back.
I use this stuff on sliding glass doors that have frozen wheels and/or locks and it works awesome.
the oldest repair job Ive done with this stuff is over 5 yrs ago and its still working like new today.
