Sounds like the tranny is wearing out.

If wheels spun by hand and feel click, that's not good.

Differential could be wearing. Not sure though.

Humming noise coming from front end. It starts about 20 mph and the pitch gets higher as speed is increased?

More than likely it may be a wheel bearing, if the sound gets louder. Jackup the side where you think the sound is coming from, and spin the wheel to see. You can jack up one tire and get in vehicle put foot on brake start engine then put it in drive with foot on brake, release brake slowly. Wheel will spin and you can tell if thats the one.( put E-brake on first ) Let down and do the same on the other side to check it. As long as one wheel is on the ground the car will not move. Then you can tell if its a wheel bearing or not. God-Bless you and your family!

I have a 98 Oldsmobile Intrigue the code c1226 and c1233 what does these codes mean.the track off ,anti-lock,service soon light are on what does this mean

C1226 Right Front Excessive Wheel Speed Variation
C1233 Left Front Wheel Speed Sensor Input Signal Missing
You could have a bad sensor on the left front wheel or bad wiring. Have it checked by a mechanic. Your anti-lock braking system is probably disabled under these conditions.

Why is there a humming noise, relative to road speed, starting at 35-40 mph

Check your cars Wheel bearing. Jack up the wheels and hold tire in 6 & 12 o'clock positions(up and down) and shake the tire by pulling towards you with one hand and pushing away with other hand, if you find play then you need wheel bearing on that axle side.

Vibration between 25-35mph only in DRIVE (automatic)

U joints get worse as speed increases. You can try replacing the mount for the transmission it may help. Also check to see if the drive shaft is damaged.

I have a 2005 chevy cobalt that is making a humming noise after 20 mph. I can also feel a vibration in the gas petal. "noise" increases with speed. Higher milage and just had struts replaced about 150

squeakey69 is right it sounds like you have a wheel bearing problem cobalts are notorious for wheel bearings going bad i would go ahead and change both front bearings because if one is going bad the other usually isnt far behind hope this helps.

2003 chev suburban with 130k miles starts humming / groaning at 50-60mph. Seems to be coming from the rear. Checked the tire pressures and for signs of ply separation and can't see anything. Spun the...

put the rear on jack stands, and run the wheels up to about 20 to 30 and have someone lay underneath and see if the sound is coming from the center of the rear end. I rebuild these rear ends all the time, sounds like possibly the start of bearing failure

2000 Stratus, 2.4 automatic. A loud humming noise

hi this sounds like you have a wheel bearing that has gone u/s the way to find out which one is to individually jack each wheel up and spin the wheel first you might hear a grinding noise, if not you can pull the bottom of the wheel and push the top in a rocking motion top to bottom, left to right if you get a large amount of movement then this will also point out which wheel it is....hope that helps

"Humming" or "bearing" type noise in left front at highway speeds

That's a hub bearing. Replace the one that's doing it. I'm assuming this 'roar' is coming from the front, NOT the rear.
