Sputtering at idle

Hey guys just noticed something today and wondered if it is normal or not. I started up my 13 RS, had to run inside to grab something. When I came back out I noticed a sputtering sound. You can't hear it from the rear of the car or inside just by the driver front tire. Is this normal or should I get it looked at

Greetings Buschman,

Truly sorry to hear about the sputtering sound you're experiencing. I would be more than happy to schedule an appointment for you to have this diagnosed at a certified GM dealer near you. Feel free to send me a private message and reference this thread so that I may be of assistance!

Best regards,

William R.

Took the Camaro in for an oil change yesterday, asked the tech to check over the noise I have been hearing. He says it's nothing, but could be coming from my K&N intake. Just by that I have lost all faith in my dealership. I went thru a drive thru last night and you can really hear it.
Does anyone else have more noise coming from the cat's (area) on the drivers side than on the passengers side?
If it's normal then sorry for the post, but I really don't like the sound of it.

could it be a leaking exhaust?

Either check it yourself or have it looked at by an exhaust shop. Use a piece of paper if you can't see anything.

I just listened to my engine, but I don't think I would call the 'noise' I heard sputtering though. Nothing seemed out of whack to me. I will listen again tomorrow with the helpful ear of a cousin of mine (car guy), he should be able to give a description and maybe that will help you out.
