You may have an axle bearing or possible bearing in the differential that is starting to fail. Check for bad wheel bearings. Depends on where the noise is coming from. This can be a belt, a wheel bearing, transmission or a bearing in the alternator/power steering pump/belt tensioner. Too many possibilities, have a shop check it out, it could cause more damage if not addressed.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Loud whine then knock in overdrive


well, without hearing the noise myself, i could guess that the torque converter clutch might be going bad. the torque converter is the part that transfers the power from the engine to the transmission via viscous fluid motion, the converter also has a clutch that internally provides a direct connection inside the converter for better fuel economy. but as with anything labeled as a clutch, it wears down to a point where is slips. the noise your hear could be the torque converter clutch slipping. i owned a 90 astro van with the same drivetrain that made a noise similar to what you speak of up hills. while driving up hills, fully depress the accelerator and if the clunking noise occurs, then the whine goes away as you accelerate faster in a lower gear, very likely this is the case. you would have to have a transmission shop diagnose further. i drove that old van for five more years cause i didn't want to pay to have transmission repaired. it can be very expensive.

Our Lincoln LS has a higher noise level when driving at speeds over 50. A whining sound from the back seat- is there something wrong with the differential. We just changed the oil in the differential but...


If it is a whining noise and not a metallic grinding (such as a bearing noise) and the noise seems to change with a light change in load; IE- louder with maintaining speed on slight incline versus quiter on deceleration, then you are likely to be hearing a worn ring and pinion gear set. Changing the fluid will not affect this type of noise and if the old fluid was free of metallic debris, then you have time on your side to prepare for replacement of the ring and pinion. A great deal of customers are opting for a used differential which is usually a bit less expensive than rebuilding the one you have.

1997 s10 2 wheel drive truck. 4.3L v6 makes a loud noise as the car accelerates fast or under load. When running 55 I can release the gas pedal and the noise is not audible. I can put the truck in neutral...


Your noise sounds like it is power train related,If you have eliminated the engine,Since it doesn't make the noise while moving and in neutral.
It sounds like a universal joint in the drive shaft.Do you notice a vibration
along with the noise?

No power when accelerating hard


Possibly a plugged catylitic converter. This can cause to much back pressure and that will cause the engine to run poorly under acceleration or loaded conditions.

A clunk when i turn


It sounds like your CV Joint is worn. Simple check is to drive in a left circle and then right circle. If the noise get's worst when your turning left or right, then it's time to change the CV Joints.
Might as well change both sides since they have the same miles.
Total CV joint failure = Tow to the shop. 
Good luck and hope this helps.
