All,

I have an '02 5speed with about 25,000 miles on it. I have noticed for the past few months that my clutch shudders (mostly in reverse), typically only in the morning. Sometimes it doesn't matter how long I have let the car idle, sometimes it does. Today it happened through third gear as I was going to work. Is my clutch bad, or is it the driver? I've been driving manual transmissions for over ten years, and have only replaced one clutch, so I doubt that. It seems like the clutch is just too weak for the power output of the engine. Either that, or the throttle-by-wire is giving me some heartache.

Any feedback would be appreciated.
