Car makes roaring like noise while driving. Gets louder the faster car moves. I don't feel any vibration from gas pedal. Engine runs fine and car drives ok.

Most of my customers describe a failing wheel bearing as a "roaring" noise that is effected by speed. See if you can turn slightly from one side to the other to try and change the noise confirming the bearing failure. Here are diagrams to help you replace the bearings. This video show the job being done on a similar car with diagrams below to show you how on your car

Check out the diagrams (Below). Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

1998 Nissan Altima mileage: 139,000. When I begin to accelerate from a stopped position, a low roar/vibration occurs (from the engine). Once moving and at around 10 mph the roar stops and does not occur at any other time. This just started recently. Any idea what might cause this? Thanks.

We think that the timing belt tensioner may be failing making the belt too loose. Also, check the water pump bearing.
