Hi Jacob,

Is there a chance that you can get a recording of the noises? Maybe one of the whirring noise and then another of the ticking sound?

I have some ideas but hearing them will really help determining what they are. Thanks

The noise when accelerating and decelerating sounds like a wheel bearing. They make a distinct sound which is why I would need to hear it to be sure. Maybe next time you are driving with someone, have them get the recording.

As for the ticking noise when the engine is off, this could be a number of things. Many of which are normal so again, I would need to hear the noise in order to better tell you what it could be. First things that come to mind of ticking when the engine is off is the exhaust or other metal components. This would be considered normal.

Here is a guide that helps explain the common causes:
