Whirring started suddenly today, 90 degrees out, cut off all air/radio closed windows still obvious sound at highway speeds which decreased as I slowed and stopped. Upon acceleration started back up again at around 30-35 mph. No skip felt in transmission. Oil air and cabin filters, new battery installed last 60 days. New tires last 90 days. Approx 68k miles on car, all highway miles, 100 mile work commute each day. Bought used at 36k in jan2013. All maintenance except last oil change done at dealership.

    Just a thought; Possible wheel bearing noise.

    Thanks for quick reply. This sounds like it's up in the motor. Hoping it's a simple fix,a fan belt maybe?. Owned 3 or 4 Accords, first time I ever heard this noise.

    If there was a way for us to see and hear these things, it would be so much easier. There is a Honda guy on here that might be able to help, maybe he will see this post and respond.
