Rhythim dull noise wshen accelerating

I have Toyota Corolla 2001, it runs great but when I accelerate I hear dull rhythmic (not very loud but mostly irritating) noise. I starts over 30 MPH and changes pattern with acceleration (goes faster). As soon as I press the brakes and decrease the speed, the noise is gone. Could anybody help me with this?

    No gognads, it is the same if I turn the steering wheel a little while driving

    no gognads, it is rather the same when I turn the steering wheel while driving, no change at all

  • rickey73 Sep 07, 2009

    no, it is certainly not a metallic noise. sound is mostly dull, like when one blows over open bottle

    I see that "differential diagnosis" might be a broad one. Could it be something potentially dangerous (of all items numbered)

    does the noise change if u turn the steering wheel a little while driving? if it does it might be a wheel bearing

    I have the same car (2001 Solara) My car is making the same sound at 30 mph, like blowing over an empty bottle, very annoying sound. Any Ideas?

  • Mike kitson Feb 15, 2013

    The sound disappears when I let off the gas and doesn't appear when I have the car on cruise..My wheel bearings and brakes checked out fine recently but I do have a check engine light for a vsv valve evap issue..Any chance that's the problem?

Well,if it doesnt change with the wheel turned a little it might be a rear wheel bearing or even a couple of loose lugs on a wheel,or even a brake pad worn down to the rivets,can u give a better description of the noise? (metallic,dull thumping,etc...)

Rear acceleration noise

Try rear wheel bearings. The cause a roaring noise that increases with acceleration. Sounds very similar to loud road noise.
