If there is like a rubbing /scraping noise from the rear of the vehicle it could be worn out brake pads.

Or the other thing is if the handbrake has been adjusted correctly you will get a rubbing/sraping noise coming from the rear more noticeable at slower driving.

As a lot of people think if they just tighten up the adjuster at the handbrake it will be fine but this is not the case.To fix the problem you need to take it to your mechanic and have it adjusted correctly and all parts cleaned.The 10mm nut at the handbrake needs to be backed off all the way,wheels need to be removed and disc rotors,once disc are off check the handbrake shoes and give a good clean/sand with rough paper and also clean and sand the inside of disc rotors that make contact with handbrake shoes.then slide the disc back on gentle you should find they are quiet loose.remove disc aagain and slow adjust handbrake shoes until you can feel it getting hard for disc to slide on adjust until you can feel some drag as you rotate disc do the same on both sides of vehicle and then refit all parts you have removed put wheels on and lower vehicle .once the vehicle is down and level go inside the car to the handbrake lever and adjust the 10mm nut under cover until you get 7 clicks.
when the vehicle is running and the handbrake is on 7 clicks and you put the vehicle in drive the handbrake should hold the vehicle.
Road test and listen for rubbing noise it should be fine now.

I have a 5spd manual have nothing but issue it stalls when idling or when they are low vigorously vibrates between 60km to bout 100km gears wouldn't go in everythime the clutch is in had to slam in

Clutch disc facing material may have come apart, causing clutch to drag when it should freewheel. Disc replacement may be the only cure. This can also cause vibration because disc is now unbalanced.

1999 rav4 rumbling rubbing noise and feel when cranking wheel in reverse

A couple points here:
it is probably just the tire rubbing on the inside of a wheel well. Have a tire shop or mechanic check for wear of suspension components. Excessive wear on suspension arm bushings, ball joints, struts, etc. could cause "slop" or excessive travel forward and back which is not normal.
Itis also good practice to NEVER turn to steering all the way to the stops in any four or all-wheel drive vehicle.

My 2000 Honda Odyssey (240k) made a loud clank noise when I went slowly over a speed bump. Now, when I turn the wheel-- either driving slowly or in park-- I hear and feel two or three rubbing or snapping...

The Hondas do have at the back suspension arms which are holding the wheels,Big suspension bushing,which when they snap off or cracked,are causing clank noises because are not holding enough the rear axle. on the other hand the vehicle loose the tracking as a result to cause wear and tear of the rear tires as well. Ask from your local mechanic to examine your car.
