pull the front wheel bearings as they may be starting to fail or need new grease .or adjustment. drive the car slowly turning the wheel to almost full lock and see if you can hear a clicking sound ( CV joints needing replacement) . The humming sound will be from a harmonic vibration so check that the drive axles are dead straight and not bent marginally.. Check that where the axles are in the diff that the bearings/bushes are not worn allowing the drive shaft to wobble slightly at speed.. If the tread pattern is anything but highway (Partially off road or snow ) then the tread pattern may be a contributing factor.

Ticking sounds like a dry lifter, when was the last time you changed the oil and filter? Humming sounds like you need a tire rotation because of uneven tire wear.

Some time when i start my car the engine will make a humming sound. and some time when i am driving the engine will make the same noise.


Turn off the airconditioning to see if that helps. If it does, then it is likely the airconditioning compressor.

Remove the water pump drive belt. Feel the water pump for free play. If excessive, then replace the pump. You can try spinning it too to see if it's noisy.

WIth the drive belts off, start the car for a few seconds. Twenty seconds tops should do it. Not too long as it will overheat.
Is the noise still present. If not, then check all pump bearings, pulley bearings, tensioner bearings, water pump etc as the noise is one of those things.

Makes a humming sound between 30 and 40 mph


I suspect that one of your wheel bearing have worn out. SO to confirm please lift up one by one all the wheel and rotate. listen to any hum which corresponds to your noise. hold the wheel on either sides and check for any shake even a small one. if you detect a hum check the wheel bearings and the HUB, most cars have this assembly making the noise specially when the grease becomes dry or there had been water logging specially salty.If so change the bearings / hubs, when changing look out for any damage to the axle. I hope you get this right. Helpful? Good day.
