My 54 plate xtrail has a rumbling noise but not exactly sure of the locin sounds more like front n/s gets worse 60-70mph

rumbling noises are an indication of wheel bearing problems
as noise travels it would be best to service all the wheel bearings
check the drive line cv or "U" joints as well

While driving my 97 ford expedition, it makes a low rumbling sound, similar to the sound of driving on a shoulder. When I let off the gas or give it more gas, it usually stops for a few seconds, then it...

sounds like you have a wheel bearing that's bad, some vehicles have the wheel sensor mounted right to the wheel bearing.
best way to check is drive down a straight road at a steady speed, then turn the wheel left, like your going to change lanes, then do the same but this time turn the wheel to the right.
Now if the noise is louder when you turn left, then that tells you the right wheel bearing is bad, if you turn right and the noise is greater, then your left wheel bearing is bad.
the reason for this, is when you shift the vehicle left or right, the weight of the body shifts the opposite way that you are turning, thus putting more weight on the bearing, causing it to get louder.
Hope this helps.

2004 ford freestar rumbling noise as I drive down the road at about 45-60mph - it sounds and feels a bit like I hit a rumble strip but it is coming from the engine

Sounds like a half shaft. Reach around behind each wheel and see if there is play in the shaft that leads from the wheel to the transmission. There should be no play. Other possibility is a bearing hub. Jack up car, grab the tire at 9 and 3 o'clock. Shake wheel if there is movement not from the tie rod then it is the bearing hub.

Toyota Matrix 2006 X/r auto trans 146000 km 2 wh drive .It has devloped what sounds like a bearing noise which is most noticable at 80 kph.****** shop says its in the trans but not bad enough to find...

I doubt it's a transmission problem, it's more likely to be a wheel bearing issue, get another opinion at another shop or the toyota dealer.

Feels like im driving over rumble strips

Sounds like you have a bearing-s going bad in the drive line someplace [ wheel bearing, u-joint, Diff gears, etc.] But may be a loose wheel.

98 disco 300tdi with rear wheel bearing problems

I would just replace the bearings, They're not that expensive and they're quite easy to replace. After replacement, if it happens again on the same wheel, you probably have a bent semi-axel. I had this exact problem on a '93 200tdi disco.

Noise problem

These vehicles are frequently exhibiting wheel bearing problems...sometimes sounds like a "rumble". Could be that pothole incident has caused damage to the bearing. Cheers, Patrick
