Post Clutch in summer weather/heat

Ok, are you guys all experiencing similar to this:

My clutch felt very "light" today, compared to spring time say. Today was a rare ~17C deg. sunny all day. It felt like the clutch would only engage when the pedal was released almost all the way. The clutch is still good as new with only 23k km's on it.

Same thing goes for my stock shifter. Before I was getting pissed cause it felt too notchy I though my synchros were going but today it's as smooth as butta. Can anyone else relate? I just think my car is moody as hell.

Oh yeah Ken, I can relate to u. Mine does the exact samething. The clutch feels really lite on days that its really warm out and shifter feels really smooth too. yep mine does the exact same thing. I have only 15000 km my car. I'm wondering the samething too, is it normal that our cars do that?
hey does your clutch chatters too when its cold? cuz mine does. =(
going to go complain to the dealer about my clutch problem soon, but gotta find time to do it though. =(

Only chatters once in a blue moon, only when I start off in the morning, and I hardly give it any gas; sometimes I get it in reverse too, but again I don't give it a lot of gas. So I don't think I have that "serious" chatter problem. It would be nice if you could get the newest part# for the clutch which was supposed to help fix the chatter. Otherwise, can you say ACT?

Mine does the same thing only 18000km.Also my timing belt tensioner needs to be replaced its making some loud knocking noise when the engine is cold,i thought i had a sticky valve.Dealer said that the check engine light would have come on which it did'nt so he said that it had to be the tensioner bcs he's seen the problem before.
