You check your tranny fluid level? Can you notice it while the car is off and you shift through the gears?

I would guess it's your linkage if it only squeaks in certain gears. Try spraying it with good old WD-40

I have a squeal that goes away after about one minute after starting but it has something to do with my clutch. I know a guy who works for Subaru that just informed me last week that Subaru sent out a bulletin saying that they are having problems with second gear and to list anyone coming in for repair of second gear as abuse. I was told that they were also informed not to work on anyone’s car if they have been listed as abusing their car.

Has anyone else heard of this or anything similar?
