Strange vibration humming help !!!
Hey everybody , was on the road this past weekend , coming from York pa to New York City on my way back I was cruising at about 75-80mph there was a point in time where traffic speed up so I did the same , a few miles later. I notice my exhaust sounded different , and I had a drone type sound and vibration coming from the front of the car , car still accelerates but up around 70 mph it would make that drone vibration , still cannot figure what's causing this sound I pull over rev the car freely and nothing , regular driving nothing only does it when I'm up around the 60+ mark anybody has a clue what's going on here

I would say to climb under the car and start pulling on stuff. See if an exhaust bracket might of came loose. Check that pesky air dam under the front bumper. Those love to come loose or tear and would make a humming noise but I'm not sure how it would play into the exhaust note unless you are hearing it wrong. Another idea that I have done in less populated areas is take a buddy with you and have him open the passenger door and hang out listening for the noise to help pin point it. I did that when my rear axel was making noise but from inside the car it just echoed.

I think i have a real bad exhaust leak, cause my gas milage is down as well and throttle response is slightly decreased
