Can anyone tell me what this noise is? It doesn’t happen all the time. It sounds like it’s coming from the left side under the hood? In the last couple months these are the things that have been fixed: front brakes (pads, rotors, bearings), 4 new tires, alignment, replaced catalytic converter, O2 sensor, air fuel ratio sensor, exhaust gasket, bearing seal, oil change, loose spare tire in mount in trunk tightened, smog check: passed.
I’ve had a mechanic check for anything loose underneath and found nothing. Did a full inspection found nothing. What is also strange is if a strong enough gust of wind blows by even with the car off and parked it will make the same sound just not as prolonged when driving on for a couple seconds. It starts around 30mph and stay at higher speeds or abruptly stops when I reach 50-60mph.

Check your bumper mounting locations near the wheel where it meets the fender, my accord would rattle in drive with the brake on, and would be fine driving, ended up being bumper mount. But could be totally different, hope you figure it out.

And check the upper engine mount on the passenger side. There is a vibration damper on it that looks like a rubber knob. That damper on mine broken and hanging there and made a lot of noise intermittently. Cost of the engine mount is $40-50 and it's not hard to replace.
