If the sound goes away when you are driving faster, you may have a lug nut off rattling inside the hubcap the when you accelerate centrifugal force holds it still on the outer edge. Therefore no sound. Pop the hubcap and take a look, tighten all nuts.


hub bearing assembly bad

The automatic transmission is making sound

They told me that there is bearing inside automatic transmission

Just be careful before you put out $800 or whatever for a new or rebuilt transmission. Get a second opinion. Avoid salvaged transmissions from wrecked cars unless you get a warranty. Those guys at the junkyards lie about miles on it, every one they have has 20,000 miles on it.
