I have a 5 speed manual transmission.I drive approx. 2 to 3 miles when the clutch make a rubbing or squeeking sound. This only happens in the morning when it is cold outside. Once the weather warms it is fine. I had the cluch cable replaced a few months ago and had it re-adjusted. I have to depress the clutch all the way to the floor board to engage and it is sloppy from 1st to 2nd gear. I have over 132, 000 miles on it and has a 4 cylinder engine. What would the cause of this be and how to fix it?

Always bleed air from cooling system after replacing coolant. Set heater for maximum heat. Remove radiator cap. Loosen drain plug and remove drain bolt (if equipped) from engine block. Drain coolant reservoir. Fill coolant reservoir to MAX mark with 50/50 water-coolant mixture. Loosen bleed bolt and fill radiator up to base of filler neck. Close bleed bolt when coolant flows out without bubbles. Tighten bleed bolt. With radiator cap removed, start and operate engine to normal operating temperature. Add coolant if necessary and check for leaks.

Also the shadetree mechanic way to bleed the air is to squeeze the top radiator hose until the bubbles quit

First off I would readjust the cable. It is not set correctly. A couple of inches of push and it should engage the clutch.
