There is a sound mostly heard while accelerating and not heard at all when braking. It sounds somewhat like a whirring sound from the rear passenger side of the vehicle. I’m not sure what this could be. It’s been going on for several months.
My car has 59000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
It might be exhaust system noise but there is also a possibility that a "rotating element", such as a wheel bearing, tire, or brake rotor interference is the cause. As you describe it, the noise is marked and obvious enough that if you request a vehicle noise diagnostic, the responding certified mechanic will quickly pinpoint the origin and let you know of any required repairs.
