Is this noise only there when driving? If so I would be checking the front wheel bearings, there should be no play in the bearing if you rock top to bottom with wheel off the ground.

I ever met the same problem with you, noise can be a starter stuck in the starter gear. Bad news. If it stops after acceleration, look at fan belts, power steering, or in the engine mounts, there are more answers
