Default clutch chatter

i've been getting clutch chatter more often since the weather has been getting warmer and warmer...i'm thinking that the clutch disk is soaking up some moisture...

like, say i'm at the stop light on a hill or something...and i shift into first and start moving, i'll get a lot of chatter...the car kinda jerks as if the clutch isn't can't grab the flywheel...and when i shift, i'll get a little more chatter...it usually only happens on sloped roads...

i've read that it goes away after the clutch is warmed up...but how do you warm it up? should i let it slip a little when first engaging it?

it's really frustrating...i think i'm going to end up getting a new clutch and my flywheel resurfaced in the next month or so...

any input guys?

EDIT: i've been reading a little more...and my problem might be bogging, but i'm not sure...could anybody enlighten me on the concept of bogging?

i had the same thing at about 22,000 miles took it to the dealer they put a new clutch in it and i havent looked back no problems since, i now have 37,000 on it.

does it stop after you have been running for a while? cuz mine only did it in the morning after the car had a night to cool all the way down. after the first few lights i went away tho. this was last summer too.

good luck, my advise have a tech. drive it and feel it behind the wheel.
