Question about 2001 Ford Crown Victoria
I've turned off the heater, and it still hums, so not that fan. It never happens long enough for me to pull over and hunt the noise down under the hood.
There is a chance it could be the small electric motor for the fan for the radiator that hides inside the shroud for the radiator. To replace it, you have to take the shroud off the radiator. When you do that, the fan comes out with it because the fan is a part of that shroud. This fan motor is powered by the battery or generator (electrical system). It operates off of electrical power from the car. Anytime you run the engine, the radiator fan which only runs on electriticy, runs when the sensors tell it to run. That's what I'd check out first. If that is what is making the noise, it's probably a fan bearing from the small fan motor that could be bad. If the bearing is bad it will just seige up and the electic motor won't run and the radiator will nolonger cool the engine. If you have a bad fan motor, eventually you won't be able to drive the car. In order to get the motor, you might have to buy the the fan motor, the fan and the shroud all in one piece. You might want to look on Amazon or Ford to see what the part looks like and also on You Tube to see if there is a do it yourself video on the procedure of replacing this all in one piece part of the fan, the shroud and the fan motor. Then if you take it to the dealer or a shop you might have an idea of what they have to do.

If you have no reverse then yes it needs to be rebuilt. as far as the whining it could be in one of the differentials. or in trans? just depends on where you hear it

Most likely it does, if you can hit the motor and it will run. I can't say for sure but you might want to chk. to see if you got a heater blower motor resister. There located (if its got one) around the heater motor and it controls blower speeds, might be worth checking out.

SOURCE: humming noise under the hood
It could be the ABS. MY HONDA DOES THE SAME THING.
I took it to PepBoys yesterday and they could not connect to the
computer interface.They said I need to take it to a honda dealer
so they can connect and determine what is wrong with the
Automatic breaking system. The noise is the ABS motor
turning on and off.

The blower motor might be bad,turn it on,high blower,and bump the blower motor body with the palm of your hand,if it starts to run,or tries to run,then replace the blower motor.
