When my Camaro is idling I hear a vibration coming from the back of the car. It happens if the car is in gear, neutral or park. Revving the engine causes it to go away. I cannot find anything loose and I am puzzled. Any help would be appreciated.

Sounds like an exhaust component is loose, probably the tailpipe, mine did the same thing, it was broken off from the frame rail hanger. Quick fix was a radiator clamp, I ultimately replaced the exhaust, and axed the tailpipes completely. You might want to have a friend get behind the rear and listen while you rev the motor, he can hold, kick and jiggle things until you can pinpoint the problem. Just be real careful, unless you are looking to have an ex-friend.........KZ

That makes sense. I was expecting something more complicated. Let you know the results of the testing.
