    Yes it is under acceleration. It seems to be coming from the left front. The wheelbearing and hub assembly has been changed and the noise remained.

Sounds like you have a bad wheel bearing or the rear end is low on gear lube.Check the gear lube very soon so as not to ruin the rear end.

    I have had to change countles bearings on those trucks and if you don't torq them right they will be bad the second you drive.Over tightening them squashes the bearings instantly and they will howl.

My car makes a droning or humming sound around 2000 rpm along with vibration but it goes away as soon as I increase the speed or come to a stop.

could be the timing belt tensioner. with the timing casing removed place a socket extension bar on some metal then to your ear as it will help you locate the noise. be careful tho. failing that big end shells i would check. hope this helps

A/c blows cold in my 1998 F-150. When excelerating it momentarily stops blowing then resumes.

Sounds like a vacuum problem. Test vacuum level at idle and while accelerating. Do repairs vacuum levels dictate.

I have a noise that sound like it is coming from my drive shaft but i am not positive its not quite a GRINDING NOISE ALMOST LIKE A HOLLOW RATTLE

check the fluid in the rear. We just replaced a rear on the same exact vehicle. Does it hum going down the road? Does the humming increase with speed? Also check the exhaust. Chrysler products are famous for their ratteling exhaust.

A whirling, humming sound that increases with acceleration

if the sound increases with vehicle speed, it is a drive issue, like wheel bearings or front wheel drive gears. if it increases with engine rpm, it could be a bad engine bearing, alternator or water pump.

When accelerating the car pulls pretty hard right and when I let off the gas it pulls equally hard to the left this pull increasing in intensity with speed

You need to have your front end (steering componants) checked. It sounds like something is loose, broken, or worn out.

Good Luck

My front end makes a loud humming noise. At low speeds, I hear a humming noise and at high-speeds I can hear a noise in my tires. Not sure if it is an the wheel bearings, bad tires, or alignement.

Alignment will not create a sound by it's self. The most common cause of humming (especially if you have an agressive tread design)is a wear pattern in the tires...check for that or rotate the tires around & see if the noise changes. If it does then you know it's in the tires. & Not always, but most of the time a bearing noise will increase or decrease in intensity if you load up one side at a time by doing 35-50 mph & turning slightly to each side.

Performance issue

Did you check the ignition timing of the engine before you fire it up? Increase in temperature with increase in load is usually caused by retarted ignition timing.
