Loud hollow wind noise when accelerating

HI Cindy
The noise you hearing is the rear end bearings going bad
you should get them replaced as soon as possible
the longer you drive on them the more damage you do
and they could lock up

The first thing I would check is for a bad wheel bearing. If the noise lessens when turning left than I would look at the left front first. Chalk the rear wheels or set the emergency brake. Put the transmission in neutral. Jack up the left side of the car. Grab the coil spring and rotate the tire by hand. If you can feel/hear the noise than your on the right track with the bad wheel bearing. I can give you instructions on how to replace if you need them.

Have you checked the spindle bearings, what about the rear wheel bearings, jack up the car and spin the wheels, start the car and put in drive for the front wheels (you might have to sit inside and shut the door to hear it), always stop the wheels from turning before putting back in park.

My jeep has a whining noise sounds like in front right tire area. had to 3 mechanic they can't figure what it is

The only thing that can cause a whining noise in that area is a bad wheel bearing.
The bearing in yours is a large double set of rollers that is fairly strong. As such, it's possible that if one roller is bad it can make noise without the bearing becoming loose or binding. When checking on a lift there is no load on the bearing and therefore it may be difficult to hear the noise.
The bearing is pressed into a hub assembly that is replaced as a unit. New they are around $200
used are far less ($40-$50). If you want to do the job yourself, you need to remove the wheel, brake caliper, rotor and axle. The hub is bolted in from the backside. It's time consuming but not that difficult. You will need a chilton or haynes manual for the specifics and if you get stuck along the way, ask and I can help.

Honda Pilot 111,000 miles. Wheel or tire noise?

it can be any of the above, rotate the tires and see if the noise location seems to change, but the last thing i would suspect is the CV, they just click when turning, the wheel bearing is my choice here, they roar, tires make a diff noise.
