Loud howling noise that get louder when I speed up and softer when I slow down


You need to try and localize the area the noise is coming from, engine area, underneath of car or in the rear. Does the noise happen when car is standing still and gas is pressed? This kind of noise could come from a worn wheel bearing or differential.

The car is a manual tranny car, your synchromesh gear is not engaging properly, take to a tranny shop to check it as a bearing may be out in 3rd gear.
Hope it resove your query.

Sounds like your belt is slipping. I would check the condition of the belt and test the Belt Tensioner.

Most definately some bushing. Just check all of them, make sure all the bolts are tight. Jack the car up and get underneath it and start wiggling the suspension. Grab the wheel and shake it. Try to find the corner or side of the vehicle that the sound comes from.

Engine noise


mabey check out your transaxle underneath for looseness by trying to twist or wiggle it up down when its parked. nothing should move while its parked. since there no irregular wear on the tires you can cross off alignment parts underneath. does the transmission feel good switching gears? not an easy problem to solve

Most likely it's a wheel bearing going out.., If you turn to the right, or the left when driving the noise will change pitch. Been there done that.....
