This problem that your having is all too common on Jaguars. I have a 2002 X-type and I have been completely screwed over with it. I've had all of your problems and then some. The noise your hearing is a prop shaft most likely in the front of the vehicle. Jag says that it doesn't need to be replaced but you always can. They quoted me somewhere close to 1,300. Good Luck.

Hi, from your description it sounds like you have a wheel bearing problem in the rear of the car. It is common to have one or both wheel bearings fail causing a whirring type noise like the one you are hearing.

My honda Civic 04 whistling noise

Check the protective backing plate for the brakes to see if its bent. Look at the opposite side to get a good idea what it looks like to bend back into shape if so. If bent they will create a noise or whistle effect

My car makes a loud clunking noise at around 65mph.

Not sure if this is this answer, but I had a problem with a noise under the front end once....turned out to be the cowling under the front was broken and it took a high speed to force it down enough to hit the road.

Good luck!!

check your wheel bearings, brakes and backing plate, since you said the noise is proportionate to speed i'm pretty sure its your wheel bearing, does the noise change when you turn (get louder or softer?) if so, i'm 98% sure its the wheel bearing
