It sounds like either your CV joint or your wheel bearing is failing. It's definitely time to STOP driving it and check it out. Lift the vehicle and remove the left front tire. You will not necessarily be able to determine if you have a bad wheel bearing with the tire on. Once exposed, you can see and check everything for excessive play and roughness. Either problem is very serious and needs to be fixed immediately.

I hear a whine when i take my foot off the gas. The faster i go the louder the noise is when i remove my foot.


If you have a turbo that could be it, usually around 40 mph it's noticeable. Driveline, gearbox and differential can also produce a whine. Put it in neutral and coast, listen for any variations. Clutch in, clutch out...after you pinpoint the area it's coming from it will be easier to troubleshoot.
Hope this helps,

I have a 2004 Toyota Matrix with a vibration noise coming from the front end. The noise gets louder the faster you drive and is present even when you push in on the clutch and put it in neutral. If the driver jerks the wheel to the right when driving the noise stops for a second. The noise keep up at the same pitch if you **** the wheel to Left. If you think it's a wheel bearing, which side would you guess?

WHEEL BEARING USUALLY STARTS MAKING A ROARING TYPE NOISE WHICH USUALLY GETS LOUDER THE FASTER YOU DRIVE, SOMETIMES THEY WILL BE LOOSE , TO CHECK JACK UP THAT WHEEL AND GRAB TOP AND BOTTOM OF TIRE AND SHAKE, IF THERE IS MOVEMENT, TRY TO GET SOMEONE TO ROCK TIRE FOR YPU AND WATCH WHERE AXLE GOES INTO CENTER OF BEARING AND SEE IF AXLE IS MOVING WITH TIRE MOVEMENT AND SPINDLE REMAINS STATIONARY, THEN IT IS BAD BEARING, OR SOMETIMES THERE WILL BE NO MOVEMENT, THEN BLOCK REAR WHEELS AND RUN CAR WITH THAT WHEEL IN AIR AND SEE IF YOU HEAR NOISE, GOOD LUCK.

It is your Wheel Bearings. I just changed mine out on my Grand Am with the same problem. Now I have no humming noise.
