Could just be the cold. The cold has caused a lot of strange noises to my vehicles. Hoe cold was it?

Mine acts up in the cold to the point where it's basically undriveable. Clutch gets really stick and shifter is mushy and doesn't seem to want to stay in gear. I officially put mine up for the winter too. It's a shame, I just got my tuner in the mail and its too cold to test it out

If its slushy out, prolly just wet belts that are a tad loose. If not, I would look at the alt, idler pulley and water pump...in that order. Pretty easy to hear where its coming from with hood open and listening through a paper towel tube.
