Whining noise coming from back left of car when not moving as well as moving

Hello, my car started making a whining noise that's coming from around the back left wheel, it happens when the car is stationary and mobile so I believe it could be the fuel pump but I don't know what else it could be

My car has 300000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Experienced mechanics share their insights in answering this question :
The noise you are hearing is likely the fuel pump. The fuel pump may be extra noisy when the fuel tank is low on fuel versus when it is full or nearly full. The noise could be the internal bearings in the fuel pump going bad; if this is the case, the bearings will fail in a short time if the pump is not changed. There is no way of knowing how long it will last since it could last another day or another year before it seizes and stops pumping. If you’d like, a certified YourMechanic technician can come to your home or place of business to perform a car is making a noise inspection to verify this symptom and suggest any appropriate repairs for your vehicle.

Whirring or Whining

These sounds can indicate a number of different problems, including a failing water pump, a bad power steering pump, low power steering fluid, a failing alternator, or problems with the air-conditioning system.

Your Car Makes a Humming Noise When Accelerating

If you hear a rumbling/humming noise as you idle and when you accelerate, the noise gets louder (like an airplane taking off) this is most likely a wheel bearing issue. What it could mean: This wheel bearing noise is often mistaken as engine noise.

Definitions of whirring. sound of something in rapid motion. synonyms: birr, whir, whirr. type of: sound. the sudden occurrence of an audible event.
A loud noise coming from your vehicle when you accelerate, particularly one that sounds similar to a lawn mower is most likely due to an exhaust system leak.
The drive belt is what drives various components such as the alternator and power steering system. If the drive belt becomes loose, it will produce a loud whining or squealing noise as you drive. Loose drive belts should be tightened as soon as possible.
In short it`s a high pitched squeal/whine/hiss/buzz noise emanating from a computer or electronic device.
This malady is often diagnosed as a bad ring and pinion gear. Generating a “whine” or “howling” sound under positive load i.e. acceleration is more in line with a worn or failing ring and pinion gear or a ring and pinion gear set that has not been setup correctly.
Should the whining noise of your transmission continue whenever your vehicle is in gear, this can mean there is a problem occurring in your torque converter. Check to see if the noise desists when you shift the vehicle to park or neutral. A constant whining noise when your car is in gear needs professional attention.
If your exhaust pipe is loose, it can cause your car to make a helicopter-like sound. This is the problem with the mounts or brackets holding the exhaust pipe. You`ll need to have a mechanic take a look at this and tighten or replace the mounts.
Strange Noises

If the sound resembles humming, buzzing, or clunking, you may be experiencing transmission failure. Bad automatic transmissions may emit humming, buzzing, or whining noises while manual transmissions have harsher “clunking” sounds.

Whining noise coming from back left of car when not moving as well as moving
ANSWER : The noise you are hearing is likely the fuel pump. The fuel pump may be extra noisy when the fuel tank is low on fuel versus when it is full or nearly full. The noise could be the internal bearings in the fuel pump going bad; if this is the case, the bearings will fail in a short time if the pump is not changed.

When I turn on my AC the radiator fans do not turn on. The fans do come on when the car warms up so I know they are working and the fuses are good. The AC compressor does come on and the air blows ice cold when the car is moving. Car is a 2006 Chrysler Sebring Sedan 2.7l v6.
ANSWER : The control circuit for the fans needs to be checked. For example, there is usually a condenser fan relay in the A/C electrical controls. There could be a fault with that relay and/or wiring problems, perhaps even just a loose connection, blown or loose fuse, and so forth. To resolve something like this, the recommended service is an electrical component diagnostic. If you request that diagnostic service, the responding certified mechanic will get the problem pinpointed and resolved.

I’m having problems with my back tires; there has been some skidding and an unpleasant scraping noise coming from my back tires.
ANSWER : It sounds as though one of your wheel hubs or the bearings are sufficiently worn, allowing the wheel to tilt a bit, specifically while turning left. This suggests that the right rear wheel hub or bearings are the culprits and indicates that the brake drum is scraping against the brake backing plate. Another possibility is that the wheel speed sensor has come loose and rubs against something that rotates.

It is recommended that you get a certified professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to come to your location and inspect the rear brakes for you.

A whining noise starting at 20 m/ph as well as oscillating noise which speeds up and slows down – coming from drivers side.
ANSWER : Hello, thank you for writing in. Due to having the tires replaced recently, you may have a balance issue. Tires are "balanced" in a process where they spin the wheel on a machine and make sure they turn evenly. Any issues are corrected by adding weights to certain parts of the tire. The tires may have been improperly balanced, or may not have been balanced at all. You should start there, and see if the issues is resolved. When they have the wheels off, have a technician check the brakes. Make sure the pads were properly installed and are in place. Between the two inspections and any possible corrections, the issue would go away. If the noises continue, you will want to have the wheel assemblies inspected.

A large clunking noise is coming from the front left of my car anytime I start my car, and anytime I go over a pothole/speedbump
ANSWER : Hi, thanks for writing in. If simply starting your car causes a clunk, then you may have another damaged motor or transmission mount (there are 4 total). You should replace all 4 mounts. When one mount fails, it allows excess motion of the engine/transmission, damaging the other mounts as well. It is false economy, generally speaking, with the age and mileage of your Honda, to do them one at a time. If you would like help with these replacements, consider having an expert automotive technician from YourMechanic come to your home or office to perform the engine mount replacements for you.

Squealing and clicking noise from back part of the car but only when moving forward
ANSWER : Hello, thank you for writing in. The first step is to definitively determine if the noise happens when the vehicle is moving (and it is brake or wheel related), or if the noise happens constantly when the vehicle is running. There may be debris stuck between the rotor and the brake pad, as the space between them while the brakes are off is very small. Wheel weights used for balancing the tires are either clipped or glued to the inside of the wheel, and they may have had issues due to the rain. Locating the noise, and the giving the area a full inspection needs to happen first. If you remove the tire and check the brakes, and there is nothing obviously wrong, then you may want to look into other components in the area. For help with an inspection, contact our service department to schedule an appointment.

crunching noise coming from front left hand side of vehicle that I can feel in the steering wheel
ANSWER : Hi there:

It really depends on what type of 1998 Ford you have, but in general, yes; there are individual components in the front suspension that could cause this type of noise to occur, ranging from steering stabilizer bushings to ball joints or CV joints being worn out and needing to be replaced. The best way to diagnose this issue is to contact a mobile mechanic and have them complete a car is making a noise inspection. It’s best to drive your car for about 20 minutes or so before the mechanic arrives so they can replicate the conditions.
