    Hey guys, just wondering if you could help me figure out what or if is wrong with my car.

    It is 2000 ford zx2. There is a noise coming from the engine area. It sounds like a hole in the exhaust, but I not sure it is because I just had the exhaust replaced about a year ago and the noise doesn't start until I reach about 25 mph. As speed increases the pitch increases and the noise seems to get louder, wheels?

    And lastly, the noise goes away when I turn right. It doesn't have to be a sharp right, just staying in one lane weaving back and forth in the lane will make the noise go away. The noise does coming back once I have straightened out or turn/veer left.

    Up until yesterday, I thought the noise was coming from passenger side, but yesterday it sounded like it was driver side, and this morning it sounded middle. Not sure if that makes a difference because we all know that sound can be tricky.

    I know a decent amount about cars, but this has me stumped.
    Thanks in advance for your help.

    First guess would be a wheel bearing, but could have something to do with the steering rack.

    Sounds like maybe a c.v. joint.
