This is on a 2000 Wagon with the 24V engine and 78K miles. While driving there is a deep humming sound from the engine compartment. I thought it maybe wheel bearings. Checked the wheel bearing and they seemed OK. Put it in neutral and it didn't go away. It didn't change when turning either way. When I parked the car I got the humming at 3K rpm while in park. Any ideas as to what to check first? I hope that it isn't the torque converter.

My wagon makes a deep humming sound at certain RPM's and speeds too. I chalk it up to harmonics, and don't worry about it.
(Off the wall moment: Have you ever hummed along with a vacuum cleaner and got your head to vibrate? Fun, and cheaper than drugs) :)
