Mystery Noise

So, my mustang has been making a strange noise and I can't seem to find anything wrong.

The noise sounds like it's coming either from the engine near the steering wheel, or perhaps my front left suspension.

It's like a clicking/popping noise. It happens at low throttle and sometimes over bumps. It's basically constantly clicking/popping at low speed and low throttle.

I have checked around in my engine bay for something loose or broken, but haven't seen anything out of the ordinary.

It hasn't affected performance at all, i.e. Steering or power. I've got no idea what it could be. Any ideas?

This should still be covered under warranty. There was a TSB issued for a suspension issue; not sure if it pertains to your symptoms. Google "2013 Mustang TSB" and see if anything pops up.

But if still under warranty, take it to the dealer.
