Don't know about the stiffness, shouldn't be that much difference. The noise/whine difference is a bearing noise in the transmission. When the clutch is out in neutral, all the bearings in the transmission are spinning. When you put the clutch in, they all stop. If the noise isn't loud and is primarially when it is real cold outside, I wouldn't worry about it. Your indicating that it is real cold by saying that the engine speeds up or slows down. With the clutch out and all the transmission oil real cold, it will put a drag on the engine and you will hear the RPM difference.

Sounds good.. I havn't changed my clutch fluid yet and I'm at 35k miles. It's not low or anything though, but maybe that would change the feel in the morning. I'll try and change fluid sometime in january..

You seem to have a pretty good grasp of the sit. though, thanks.

Paul,

I've always found that the car generally speaking is a little tighter when it's cold. Things go back to normal when the car has a chance to warm up. I've been noticing this too, since this is our first real cold spell.

The stiffness is because the fluid is cold. When the fluid gets cold, it gets thicker. Yadda yadda yadda.

I still get a morning stiffy once in awhile. As for my car it's like my body - creaks and groans when I first start up but loosens up as I start moving around. When it's cold the fluids get a little thicker, as the car gets warmer the fluids get back to their normal consistency and all is right with the world. Warm her up for a few minutes as the weather gets colder.
