Owner of a 99 Honda Accord 2.3 cyc. automatic w/141K miles. When I am driving at a steady speed of 30-65 mph I can hear a humming/growling noise coming through the front passenger side of the car. I lifted the car and was able to pinpoint the sound, it's coming from where the inner CV joint and transmission intersect. When I drive my car I am able to shift my car from P-D4 without any issues and also haven't not notice any gear slipping. When I turn my car around corners, there is not grinding noise or vibrations to the steering wheel. The noise only happens when I am driving.

Has anyone experience this? Do you think it's a transmission issue or inner cv joint issue? Bad wheel bearings? Transmission bearing issue?

bad CV axle maybe?? usually when its a bad wheel bearing the noise goes away when you go around a corner.. so it could be both.. i will tell you that the front end is a pain in the ass if you are doing it yourself.. you will need a press for the bearing..

It was actually my transmission that was crapping out. Had to swapped in a used one. Differential bearings were messed up causing fluid leaking.
