Question about 2002 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
It also starts from a stop kind of hard. When I start it cold, the engine shakes a little until I drive it a short distance and warm it up. I just changed all four fuel injectors as well.

Sounds like its missing on 1 or more cylinders. A check of the plugs and wires is in order, Could be a fouled plug or a loose/bad sparkplug wire. Best of luck.

Your fluid is either old or the wrong kind for your transmission. Changing your manual transmission fluid with a higher quality fluid should definitely reduce the difficulty of cold fluid/cold weather shifting. First go to the parts store and find out exactly what kind of fluid your transmission takes. Most manual transmission use gear oil. I recommend using something like Red Line, AMSOIL, or Royal Purple if available. A synthetic will make it even easier to shift. Always check with the manufacturer if you are unsure. I try to stick with the manufacturers recommendations because typically they know what works best with what they've engineered...but sometimes after market fluids can't be outperformed.
