My car makes a whine/humming noise when I am driving around 34-45 mph and as soon as I let off the gas it goes away put foot back on and keep it there to maintain speed and I hear it again.

Any idea? 2003 CTS sport 68,000 miles

Dont worry. Maybe your differential is not shot. Mine has been doing this since I have it. It always with light throttle between 30 and 35 mph. I bought the car with 45k on it and it was doing this. Now, I'm more than 103k on my 05 and the sound is the same...

Does sound like a musical note? Mine does the same thing. There were some threads around on noises...

To me the sound is almost like a vacuum hose or some type of pump or rushing fluid noise. There was another thread that I couldn't find where a guy changed the length and run of his heater hose to disrupt the harmonic forces... or something like that. I solved my problem by turning up the radio.

Ring and pinion. This from a old mechanic. She might go 200,000 with the whine.
Don't sweat it til it pops.
