    Default noise when cold (clutch?)

    All,

    Wondering if you can help me. A couple of times when I've started the car in the morning I have noticed a strange sound from my car. I always start my car with the clutch down. Recently I've noticed when the car is started cold and I have the clutch fully depressed, there seems to be a kind of "wub wub wub" noise coming from the engine. If I take my foot off the clutch it stops. Also, if the clutch is only partially depressed it doesn't seem to make the noise. Furthermore, once I've driven a bit, if I stop at the end of my street with the clutch depressed, it doesn't make the noise anymore.

    Any ideas? I'm wondering if there is something up with my clutch but also wondering if perhaps its the DMF and if so, how can I identify which it is? For a while, I've also noticed that when I change from 1st->2nd the clutch seems to squeek when I go through it. Similarly if I let the revs drop to almost stalling (ie I've picked the wrong gear) it also appears to sqeak.

    Its not a huge deal at the moment because there isn't anything wrong with the car as such but I'm just wondering if I have an impending clutch failure or something?

    The clutch does seem to do its job fine. ie the revs of the engine are appropriate for the speed/acceleration so it doesn't seem to slip to me.

    Cheers.

    I don't think this is the DMF as that is a fairly distinct noise as to what it is, I am slightly perplexed if the clutch is engaged and the car is idling.
