My Honda Accord 2001 has been making this noise, and I’m not sure why. The noise is almost exclusively present when I’m hitting the gas pedal. When I let off the pedal, the noise usually cuts out. I cant say it never makes the noise without hitting the gas, but its rare if at all. My car got low on Transmission fluid, and the transmission was slipping down when I’d let off the gas so I’m worried it could be a transmission issue. I took it to a transmission guy though and he said it was a front right wheel bearing and that I was low on fluid. So i added the fluid amd got the front right wheel bearing fixed, but the noise still persists. Apparently the left side front is worn too and causing it, but I’m suspect of fixing that before i’m 100% sure its the source. I dont want to sink money into a false fix. Does this noise sound like a wheel bearing? Would the noise ocurring when I give it gas be conflicting to that or can that happen? If not then what else would it be thats actually causing the noise? No engine lights are coming on, and it handles and drives as smooth as ever. Just a very annoying and concerning ‘wubbing’ noise. I’ve linked the auido recording below, thanks for any response.
