Shifts can be heard in cold weather where as warm not at all. I noticed this today 45 degrees must take longer to warm up

I don't think I noticed any noise on mine... Or maybe I just never paid attention.

Mine likes 68, then the nut holding the steering wheel only needs to be equiped with a t-shirt to function properly.

I've had no problems or different noises from driving in the hot or cold. I've driven in temps as low as 8*F and as high as 95*F.
