Hi Moderator, I think this post would be better in the 4.1 section.
Post: Clutch chatter at running temperature

Original Content:
Just took my 97 on a little roadtrip down the coast, lots of highway time. Once she gets right up to running temperature (~97c on my scangauge) I start to get quite a bit of clutch chatter coming from a dead stop in first gear. There's no clutch slippage under load, even if I purposely over rev a bit.
Could the trany be over heating?
Flipping through the Haynes manual it says the master cylinder fluid is also the clutch reservoir, but fluid levels are fine, and I'm even sure that low fluid would cause chatter.
Anyone have any thoughts?

234,000 km so far =)
