this sounds odd but mine did this when i replaced the wipers. it seems the design of the wiper frame was making a whistle at higher speeds. the freestar wipers are exposed on the window cowl and not hidden so they endure the winds at high speed. it is worth a shot.
YOU CAN REMOVE THE SERPENTINE BELT AND START THE ENGINE BRIEFLY TO SEE IF NOISE IS STILL THERE. IF NOISE IS NOT PRESENT CHECK ALL BELT DRIVEN COMPONENTS FOR LOOSE BEARINGS OR EXCESSIVE MOVEMENT. IF NOISE IS STILL THERE THEN PULL DUST SHIELD UNDER VEHICLE AT FRONT OF TRANSMISSION. THIS WILL ALLOW YOU VISIBLE ACCESS TO THE STARTER DRIVE(THE PART THAT MOVES OUT TO ENGAGE THE FLYWHEEL ON BACK OF ENGINE)WITH AN ASSISTANTS HELP START THE VEHICLE(WEAR SAFETY GLASSES)AND WATCH AND LISTEN. IF THE NOISE IS IN AREA OF FLYWHEEL YOU WILL SEE THE STARTER DRIVE(IT HAS TEETH ON IT)STAYING ENGAGED TO THE FLYWHEEL, IF THIS HAPPENS YOU CAN TRY SHIMMING THE STARTER BUT MOST LIKELY THE STARTER WILL NEED TO BE REPLACED DUE TO A BAD STARTER DRIVE(OR BENDIX) RETURN SPRING. HOPE THIS INFORMATION HELPS!!
The high pitched whine in reverse sounds normal for a honda. Ever honda I have had makes a similar noise while in reverse. The spinning, scraping noise in drive is not normal. You might want to see a mechanic about that.
