new front end growling....in reverse??

ive searched and the people i have seen with this problem, have the noise going at speed (25-45mph). i have a front end growling going slowly in reverse(1-5mph), mainly turning, but SOMETIMES going straight back. i NEVER have this problem any other time. any ideas????

See if the fan blade is hitting the shroud. If it is, you've probably broken a motor mount.

I broke an engine mount and had that same growling noise, it's because the engine rocks back a little differently as the transmission shifts into reverse. The broken mount gave it enough freedom of movement for the fan to make contact. Did it if I made a harsh turn, went down a steep hill, or backed up.
