If the sputter dissipates when the engine gets warm then a portion of the exhaust manifold is not tight against the engine block and is letting exhaust gas escape until the metal heats up and expands, if no then you might have a break in the exhaust gasket. Nothing that will harm the car or keep you from passing a smog test but annoying for sure. In my case the last bolt on the end of the manifold broke for some reason and caused the same sputter, I ened up removing the bolt and replacing it and the sputter went away. Good luck
The purpose of the exhaust manifold is to connect the exhaust ports on the cylinder head to the exhaust pipe.
exhaust manifold is where exhaust pipe hooks to engine!
The exhaust manifold needs to have a gasket in place to help seal the juncture between the manifold and the engine. After the gasket and gasket sealer are in place, tighten the bolts for the exhaust manifold. The exhaust pipe can then be replaced on the new exhaust manifold.

You will need to remove the exhaust manifold retaining bolts in your 1993 Chevy Astro. Remove the exhaust manifold. Remove the exhaust manifold gasket and clean the surface. Reverse the process to install the new exhaust manifold gasket.

Where is the leak coming from. Most likely you will need to replace the exhaust manifold gasket which will require removing the exhaust manifold.
The exhaust manifold is the header that starts at the piping on the driver's side of the engine and runs back out to the exhaust.
Intake manifold delivers the fuel air mixture to the cylinder heads, exhaust manifold collects the gases after combustion, and channels them into the exhaust pipe.
The intake manifold is where the air and fuel mix and enter the engine. The exhaust manifold is where unspent gas and air exit the engine. In other words the intake manifold is where the engine breathes in and the exhaust manifold is how the engine exhales out.
can exhaust manifold leak cause you to burn oil
