What would make a humming noise in the front of a 1980 Audi 5000 but stop when you take your foot off the gas or when you sit parked?

That noise you're hearing is most likely the wheel bearing. The noise stops because the bearing isn't in motion. As soon as you put the wheel in motion the noise returns due to the bearing being bad. It's a common problem across the board on most Audi's!

1999 Mercury front and humming noises can because by several things. Tire noises are the most common cause. A tire that is not wearing properly can cause a humming noise.

Could be many things but a front wheel bearing/hub assembly going bad comes to mind. Scalloped worn tires can give you a humming noise also.
