98 ford explorer roaring noiseThe roaring sound could be a couple of things. The first is a bad fan clutch if it is not an electric motor running the fan. The second if the sound is coming from the wheel area is a bad bearing or bearings in the wheel hub. Not quite sure what is meant about the rotating sound that you are hearing, this could possibly be from the problems I have mentioned.

I too have a 98 Ford exploder, if it is your wheel bearing jack up the tire that's makin the noise and see if it wobbles any, if it does, it is your bearing and you need to fix it fast otherwise your tire could fall off
