My 2007 Toyota Highlander just...
My 2007 Toyota Highlander just started to make a noise when I press down on the accelerator or let up on the accelerator, but only when I am going 35-40 mph. The noise is kind of a whine/grind.

Hello, my name is***** will be helping you out! I have over thirteen year of experience in the automotive industry for numerous different makes & models. I enjoy doing what I do, it is my life.

Does it sound like a certain side? (passenger side, driver side, front of vehicle, rear of vehicle or center of vehicle)

Front center of vehicle.
Toyota Mechanic: Mike, Auto Mechanic replied 10 months ago

under the vehicle or around the engine?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Around the engine
Toyota Mechanic: Mike, Auto Mechanic replied 10 months ago

If it sounds like around the engine it could be slightly low on power steering fluid. If it sounds like around one of the wheels and only happens when the vehicle is moving it can be a bad wheel bearing or the tire has uneven tread wear
