Ibased on your description (a standard trans in reverse) sounds like the power steering pump. Have you checked to make sure the fluid is full and if the sound is coming from there. An easy way to check for the sound is to remove the serp belt and start the engine to see if the sound is gone. If it is, that would be my guess at this point. NOTE: If you remove the belt, only run the engine for a few seconds. It will OVERHEAT and eventually kill the battery with the belt off. Also, it could just be low on power steering fluid.
Check it out and let me know what you find.
