While driving on the interstate,i noticed a vibration and a noise coming from the front end,i thought a tire was going flat,but after i pulled over, i found that none of the tires were flat or low on air.i drove back onto the highway,and after a short drive the same thing happened,this time after i pulled over,i noticed a clicking sound coming from the left front wheel area,thats when i called the tow truck.after unloading the vehicle from the tow truck, ther was no noise or vibration,idrove the vehicle about 3 miles and nothing happened
Check your Suspension. Front Sway Bar end links have a tendency to wear and or fail after time and can cause front end vibration at high speeds and or poor cornering issues at higher speeds. Usually is the culprit and cheap to fix. Also inspect the rest of your suspension, u-joints and ball joints for wear or leaks but first check out the end links.
The ole vibration ford problem. Here is what you should do. Go to the local auto parts store, Advance, Napa, Auto Zone, they all have one and get a for sale sign. The best thing you can do is unload it and do as I did......never buy another one. I head "ford tuff" so I thought I would give it a try. Boy was that a mistake. I don't know how they ever get repeat customers.

You didn't specify if your vehicle is 2- or 4-wheel drive.
If 4 wheel, you may have a failing contstant velocity joint which, when having developed worn spots in the cage can cause the noise you describe.
Typically, turning the wheel back and forth can cause the noise to become less or more loud and often the combination of a specific speed and driving a certain curve radius can cause the noise to nearly disappear or become more pronounced.
I think your right that its a bad bearing or hub. If your feeling it in the gas pedal and the floor, its most likely the front. If you can find an empty parking lot, try to get up to the speed it starts making the noise, and turn left and right. With the extra load being put on each bearing from turning, that will tell you which side it is.
Jack up the front end and put stands under it and block rear wheels. Look at axle boots and see if they are cracked. Try turning wheel back and forth sharply and see if you can hear any clicking. Problem could be outer axle joints. If the boots are cracked or you hear a clicking noise you will have to replace the axle. The axle and boot come as a complete unit. Please let me know what you find out.
It sounds like a possible bad front wheel bearing they will make like a humming or growling noise.The pull could be air pressure a little lower in the right front tire than the left front check the air in all tires and if pull is still there take the left front put it on the right front and put the right front tire on the left front.Sometimes tires get what they call radial pull and that will fix it or make it go the other way if it goes the other way either get new tires or put the back tires on the front of the vehicle and put the front tires on the back.
if the noise isassociated with "wheel speed" then it is in the rolling parts... axle hub bearing brake rotor caliper wheel or tires...if it goes away on right turns then you are unloading or separating the issue then...so a hub /wheel bearing /axle issue is most likely...does your brake pedal pulse when you feel it..(riding the brake while driving)..does the steering wheel shimmy ?
