Question about 2005 Toyota Highlander

1 Answer

From under the hood is coming a growling noise that occurs as I accelerate. As the speed increases, the sound increases. As the speed decreases, the sound decreases, and stops when the car is stopped. The sound seems to be coming from in front of the driver, under the hood.

2003 Rendezvous when I start to turn the ignition there is a humming noise and it continues after being turned on. As I drive the humming will increase with acceleration and decrease as I slow down.


If the noise appears to come from under the hood/engine area, suspect a bearing in one of the accessory pulleys to be causing the noise. ( Alternator/AC compressor/idler/tensioner etc ).

I have a 2007 Volvo s40 that makes a loud growling humming sound when driving just had new tires put on and it didn't change the noise.


You may have a faulty wheel bearing, if it's the front you may feel it in the steering wheel, turning side to side the noise may increase or decrease. If the noise is coming from the rear, you may feel it in your seat.

Differential noise


indicates axle bearing failure rather than diff problems
diff failure is indicated by a growling noise on acceleration or deceleration or a constant harmonic hum while driving at a steady speed
from your description of where the noise is most pronounced indicates wheel bearings

1997 expedition after i go over 40 miles engine is growling shifting but a littlle sluggish


I have had similar complaints that turned out to be the Idle Air Control (IAC) solenoid. The solenoid can get a little weak and air coming in through the intake at certain speeds can cause it to start vibrating. It sets off a moaning sound that resonates through the intake ducts and can get VERY loud. Sometimes it almost sounds like a fog horn.

If this is the type of noise you are hearing, replacing the IAC will fix it.

Other than that, the only suggestion I have is to see if you can get it to make the noise while the vehicle is sitting still. Slowly accelerate the engine speed with the vehicle stopped and the transmission PARK to see if it will make the noise. If the vehicle has to be moving to make the noise, then that eliminates several possibilities like the IAC, fan clutch, pullies, etc.....things that operate the same whether the vehicle is moving or sitting still.

Suspect wheel bearing. They can be quite tricky to isolate as noise carries through coach. Try driving next to a large building with window down. Should be a growling noise that increases/ decreases with speed.
