Ford Focus 2003 issues please help!!!

hi guys i hace to problems right now that are making my car to perform in a bad way

1.- there is a weird "rumbling" sound when my car is moving and it becomes even louder when im in the freeway, even when a dont step on the gas pedal and i put neutral and lete it go on some Downslopes or downhill, it sounds... i dont know probably is a Bearing????? if you think is is which one could it be??

2.- my car runs great in terms of Transmission and motor engagement but when i stop at the stopsign or lights, it starts idling like if its going to shutdown then it stabilizes and then again starts idling..... i dont have a clue what could it be.. i send it to do a Tune up, but it wasnt fix...

Is it in the steering wheel? if not it's probably a rear wheel bearing, it's quite common...
