Hello. The symptoms you describe can be caused by a few different things. If it appears that the noise only occurs at low speeds when accelerating then it may be possible that something is loose or worn. A worn motor mount, control arm, or axle can all cause these sorts of symptoms. It may also be possible that the noise is related to the engine itself, however a close inspection would be required to determine if this might be the case. As noises can sometimes be difficult to diagnose, due to the wide range of sounds that are a normal part of engine operation, I would recommend having a professional technician, such as one from YourMechanic, come to your location to diagnose the cause of the vehicle.
