The most common reasons for clutch chatter (USA term) are oil spots on
the clutch and flywheel faces, and worn out transmission supports. I
gather that the problem disappears after the engine warms up. That
would seem to make oil contamination most likely of the two. Does the
engine leak oil at the rear?
