Q: Only at 43,846 miles in a Nissan versa sedan 2016 and when I press on accelerator to go to 40 miles I hear a hummmming sound why i

asked by on

When driving I now hear a humming noise when I press on accelerator to get to 40 miles but over that the noise tones down. Why is that?

My car has 43849 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi Rachel. Thanks for contacting us today. There could be a few sources of this type of noise, ranging from a worn out serpentine belt or pulley, a minor vacuum leak or other belts that might need to be replaced. With less than 50,000 miles, I wouldn’t suspect wheel bearings at this point, but it’s impossible to rule them out. It’s best to have a professional mechanic come to your location to complete a noise inspection, so they can determine the root source of this noise and recommend the right repairs.
