It may be that the throwout bearing is lightly contacting the clutch assembly even when not in use. Check to see if there is an adjustment for the stroke of the clutch slave cylinder at the transmission. It may be pushing the throwout bearing into the rotating clutch assembly.

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!

Car will not accelerate when gas pushed

Clutch plate and pressure plate seem to be too weak to pull the car. To test the clutch plate, park the car on flat surface. Pull the hand brake up, start the car, depress the foot brake pedal, depress the clutch pedal, put the car in 1st gear, press the gas pedal and leave the clutch pedal at once, while keeping the brake pedal depressed.
Follow one of the two following statements:
1. Engine does not shut down and remain start. (Clutch plate, pressure plate and clutch bearing defective - Replace all as a set)
2. Engine shuts down. (Clutch system is OK and does not require any repair).

sounds like the torque converter clutch is slipping in the transmission-next time it starts doing this-instead of letting off on the gas tap the brake with your left foot-if it goes away i would be 98 percent sure that it is the torque converter clutch slipping(internal transmission problems)

Deceleration whining/humming noise

I would tell the dealer you want your rear differential opened up, checked, and more fluid added. There really is no test they can do other than to pop the cover off the differential.

sounds like to me your clutch is on th way out , try starting your car from cold and put it in second then try and pull off , or when u r driving about 35 mph put in 4th and put ur foot down on gas if it revs but dont go anywhere , when its cold it is taking the strain of the flywheel but as it heats up its starting to slip , u could try adjusting the clutch cable but sounds like u need a new clutch, but always take it 2 a trusted garage and tell them the symptoms and not what u think it is ,let them find the solution hope that helps daz
