...when the temps are below 30 does the clutch make a creaking noise when you shift gears? Mine does but then it goes away when the temps get warmer out (30 and up). I realize that its probably just the fridgid air but still it sucks to hear each time I play the clutch. Makes me feel like I'm driving some 7 year old clunker.

Not having that problem. But what I do notice in the very cold temps is that it gets real hard to get it into gears.

I'm quite pleased with my car considering how cold it has been some of the mornings this winter. Only when it's in the single digits does the stick become lathargic. Once the car is warm it's fine again.

I have problems with mine giveing me a "clutch chatter" until it warms up should I be concerned?
Yes, your flywheel may be warped. Did you ever slip it bad or borrow it to someone? If it ever was overheated (smelled bad) it may have developed "hot spots". This causes the chattering and harsh engagement, but it tends to go away after the flywheel warms up.

the screeching sound was present on my 3.5 and i had it fixed. there's a tsb on it (howling clutch). they pulled the tranny and put in a new clutch disk with an updated material to correct the problem. howling clutch only occurs on 02's.

Is this something the dealer will give me any problems on fixing. No one has ever drove it but me and I learned how to drive a car in a 5-speed and all my other cars were 5-speeds except for my integra.
