CHECK YOUR BRAKE BACKING PLATE, SOMETIMES THEY GET BEND A LITTLE,, TRY JACKING UP ONE TIRE AT A TIME, AND ROTATE IT WITH YOUR HAND,, TO NARROW DOWN THE NOISE
could be a bearing in the alternator or belt idler,, get a broom stick and use it as a listing device, place one end on the motor in differnt locations,, the other end next to your ear,, this will help narrow down,, i know my personal explorer v8 has a vaccume leak that only makes noise from under the dash when i am, on the gas.. i do remember my alternator making racket before it quit last year
inside the pcm,, there should be a sensor on the shift-linkage on the side of the trans where the shift cables hook up
a bad tire is poss.
possible bad oil level sensor
COULD BE A BAD TIMING BELT TENSIONER, OR DRIVE BELT TENSIONER..
