jack the car up.. and hold the wheel at 12 and 6 and 3 and 9 and give it a shake.. if it moves.. check what is moving.

a few things come to mind. Could be axle related, or could be a bj

Wheel bearings generally make noise while moving, and usually the faster you go the louder and more offensive the noise.

When my axle went it made a humming noise, that I really only noticed when parking the car. Ball joints always made a squeaky bed spring noise the 5 times I had them replaced, but only when turning at a slow speed, not on driving turns.

Have the suspension and axle checked. How old are the tires on this vehicle? Could be a tire problem, especially getting feedback in the gas pedal.

Those Accords are known for front wheel bearings to go. Wheel bearings is a good assumption in what you are describing.

I think the other thread is the axle from his swap on his car. This is about his Mother's 98 Accord. My neighbour has a 98 Accord, and the front wheel bearings went over a year ago.
