Subject: Why does my 9000 have a quirky clutch on cold mornings?

Now that the temp. is around 45 in the mornings here in north NJ, I warm up my 91 9000 for about 3-4 mins. My driveway is an incline. So in the morning I'm usually climbing up a slight incline to get out off the driveway. The problem is that as soon as i let out the clutch...the rpms sink and the car shudders. Its just like an inexperience driver who lets out the clutch too fast. I the best way i can describe it is to say that the "friction" point seems to be moved. My friend suggested that the clutch hasn't warmed up properly. Any info?? Thanks -T.Ghosh 91 9000s 144,000 5-speed
