Lately I have had trouble putting my car into gear (manual tranny) when it's cold.

I had the same symptoms, could barely get the car to engage first gear, and then almost lost all momentum by the time I got it into second. Changing the old sludge transmission oil to synthetic made all the difference in the world! We have had several weeks of single digits and a few below zero nights, and I have had no problems shifting since making the switch.
