Often a faucet will sputter if there is air in the lines. This happens if the water has been turned off and then on again. If this is the cause, it is only necessary to run the water a while and the air will get out of the lines, and the sputtering will stop.

If it use to be good? then you have something in the stop under sink or in hot side of faucet. If you just had a new hot water tank installed they will do this a lot of times. If it is not stop then you will have to take faucet apart and hope you can clean it out the same with the stop if you find out it is in stop. Always turn off main water to replace stop if it is faucet then just turn off hot and cold water stops. If you just installed new faucet that will do it too.
