Is it coming from the header area? On idle rev it up and see if the noise gets louder

if I'm in neutral or park it does not make a sound only when I'm in drive stopping for a light but it is every time I stop sounds kinda like it's coming from the inside of the rotor area I'm not sure exactly it's hard to tell exactly because I can never hear from outside

It's probably a spark plug. Get out with the car on open the hood and pull the throttle cable to see if you can hear it and see it when you pull it

it could be a bad plug as well. or yo have a friend drive it in front of you with the good open so you can pinpoint the sound better

Maybe something's loose? Check your battery, do you have HID's? It could be a loose ballast. Or motor and tranny mount.

Maybe your battery is loose. But here, I snagged these off google a tranny mount looks like this

It should be right before the tail of the tranny, before it attaches to the driveshaft. Jack up the car and look under it. Check for wear and tear

My struts are shot and I don't hear a metal to metal bumping sound. OP, does the sound come ink when you press in the gas or when you turn the wheel?

Yeah they make a creaking noise but never a metal to metal hit. Unless something broke off and the strut is hitting the frame?

There is a rubber boot between the spring and the frame. If it goes bad it makes plenty of noise.
