Weird Fan Like Noise

I have 2008 cobalt sport and just recently I started hearing a fan like noise when I accelerate but when I stop the noise isn't there. It's not the a/c fan because when I turn the a/c off o still hear the noise until I am stopped. Any ideas of what this could be?

You can't check for power steering in the 2008, it's electronic power steering.

well idk if this is your problem but the same thing happened to my toyota corolla and it was because the engine was leaning forward due to a broken motor mount so maybe check that out.

I might take a look at the air filter and make sure it's clean. I know if they're stopped up, hitting the gas can cause a noise similar to what you're describing.

April’s cobalt – has your dealership had any input as to what might be going on? Have you tried any of the suggestions posted?

Thanks,
