I have a 2000 Infiniti G20. When I start the engine everything sounds normal. When I start the accelerate I hear a humming sound and it it does not have to be high speed. When going about 10 mph the sound starts and when you increase speed it gets slightly louder as if something is rubbing. Already checked the wheels making sure nothing is rubbing. Has me wondering if it is some kind or bearing that needs to be changed.
Do you

If it makes noise while in neutral then it's in the engine maybe accessorie drive. If it does it while driving have wheel bearings and axles checked.

No its does not make any noise while in neutral only when accelerating. Will get the wheel bearings and axles checked and let you know as soon as possible. Thanks
