This is a tough question to solve w/out more info. But, when you let off accelerator does it stop? if yes,get the universal joints inspected. No? then i would have the front wheel bearing hubs checked,and if it is neither of those issues i would have the rear axle inspected for a bad bearing,pinion mesh.

Could be bad unbalanced tires. If the noise changes when you turn/change lanes, then it is likely a wheel bearing.

Loud Vibration / Sound Under Acceleration And Starting Engine.


Get the engine mounts checked. A bad mount may allow part of the engine to lie on a body or frame part, allowing engine vibrations to become very loud. Torquing of the engine (under load) can cause the same type problems.

Hi

It could be 2 things the rear differential for the 4 wheel drive or the torque converter, " is this an auto ?"
you may need to bleed the system through if this is the hydrolic set up, they have a slave cylinder and this can often be the cause if the fluid is low or has air in it.

Hope this helps

150000 miles. loud poppng noise in passenger compartment


You may have an exhaust system that when it heats up or all the time is collapsing internally. It would be more apparent when warm. An easy way to check is to warm car up then have someone in the car and be at the back and hold your hand near the tailpipe. You will feel exhaust coming out at idle, now have the other person rev the engine and hold the idle up does the exhaust increase. If not you have a clog and it needs to be addressed for safety. I don't think you have a cooling system problem.
