SOURCE: strange humming noise

It is the wheel bearing. Could be one or more. I had to change mine last year, it cost me about $50 for a pair of 2, and another $50 for labor.

SOURCE: 99 Ford Ranger XLT 4x4 off road. Sounds like brakes rubbing as driving along. Starts after making any hard turn left or right. Not brakes.

I had the same problem, it started out only when I was making turns but then it was all the time,, it turned out to be the camshaft
syncronizer... it sounds like there are birds chirping right behind you radio and a/c check it locate the syncronizer at the very back of the engine.. it is tucked back up under the center
of the upper intake will have a two or three prong plug going straight into... once you locate it have the truck running and
and try pressing down gently on the sensor cap to see if it make
the noise that you are hearing... if so then you will need to replace
it... not wants $850.00 to replace.. it takes about 6 hours to replace. you will have to remove the upper intake and disconnect most everything on the top of the engine....hope this helps.... and I hope it is not the camshaft syncronizer for your sake...if you want to see what it looks like go to rock
and search for it and pull up the picture....

When I hit 40 to 60 on the road I get a humming sound under hood

Slippage and not goingg in gear elizabeth. If your trans made that much noise you would be walking..I suggest you have your tires chk'd, all four, to ensure you do not have tire tread separation or a wheel balance issue. Good Luck and good luck.

sounds like you wheel bearings need to be greased up. Good ideal to have full grease job anyways. U-joints, tie rods, and bearing especially

jack up the rear wheel and spin the rear wheel to find out what the rub is. look to see if there is any rubbing marks on or in the fender well.( do not have on the emergency brake) Also if the noise could be metalic then it could be the brake drum rubbing on the backing plate.
