Check the rubber elbow attached to the PCV valve. My 1999 Buick Century just started humming this week and I finally found that the rubber elbow conecting the PCV valve to the vacuum hose had collapsed (age wear?) It kind of sounds like when you let the air out of a balloon by pulling the sides of the fill tube, only much lower in pitch and a steady note.
You probably need to top off your power steering fluid first. If the problem contiues then yes, it probably does need to be replaced.
It is very hard to turn the steering wheel and/or a whining or squealing noise when you turn the steering wheel.
No, my steering is fine.
I'm almost positive that the problem is a left or right wheel bearing. Replace BOTH. Easy and inexpensive.

If it only happens when you accelerate the most likely cause is an axle.
Make certain that your serpentine belt is adjusted properly. If that isn't the problem, make sure the power steering is functioning properly.
Your 2000 kia sportage would not accelerate and eventually went dead what could the problem be?
The problem may be in the switch, to test the accelerate portion you need a multi meter. Remove the steering column cover to gain access to the wire connector for the multi switch. Test for continuity between the top left connector pin ( flat side of connector is down ) and the bottom right when the switch is activated in accelerate. If there is continuity the the switch is good and the problem is in the ASCD control module. If no continuity is detected then replace the multi switch.
