Having a 2.3 5-spd. myself, this description doesn't fit any of the noises I've experienced or heard of as of yet....

A bit of a "squeak" from the clutch on the first couple engagements after it's sat in "corrosive" conditions overnight (wet weather) that I attribute to rusty clutch is the only "odd" noise that's similar I've noticed.

Kinda like the odd noises & response you get on the first couple brake applications when you can SEE that the rotors are a bit rusty from similar conditions.

More description would be helpful in guessing...

As these get older we're sure to see some "new" issues, but many might be similar enough to problems with others to allow a BIT of an "educated" guess....
