Too little information to go by..humming noise..what year/model/engine etc....

however i assume it s a ford and it is most likely caused by a sticky idle air control valve...they tend to hum and "hoot" when sticking, this may be associated with stalling at idle and/or hard starts unless aplying gas pedal. you can identify the idle air control valve as it is attached to most of the engnies by 2 botls and has about a 3-4" silver tube extending abaw from bolts, it is on top of the engine. when these make noise and backfeed through the air box a vibration can be felt from it. there will be a wire goinf to the valve, unplug it whil engine is running and when you hear the humming..if noise gone once it is unplugged...replce it WITH A FACTORY PART!!!

hope this helps

Why is humming noise that gets loud and then go away coming from area of my air filter


Clean the throttle body and idle air control motor. This helps about half the times. The other half would be to replace them. Or live with it. They are still working.

Loud humming noise near small stainless cylinder and air filter


It sounds like the cylinder is part of the emission control system. It is probably a valve which is stuck inside. Remove it and clean it with wd-40. If this doesn't work, let me know.
