I had a similiar problem last summer which turned out to be my rear tire. Delaminated and only showed noise at higher speeds.
Anyway, chock the front wheels and jack the car way up in the air with jackstands under the torsion bar support points. Once the rear wheels are off the ground with at least 1 inch clearance. Sart and run the car in first and second gears. You should be able to hear the howling noise. Now once it is running , it will idle along in any gear you leave it in, you can crawl under the car and pinpoint where the noise is coming from, tranny, cv joints, flywheel, etc.
This is how I found the rear tire bad.
Good luck, but it sounds like a tranny issue from your description.
Thanx! That's a good idea. I'm afraid it is tranny also.
