Today i started my car... Sounded fine. I put it in reverse It didn't go anywhere and had some weird noise knocking from underneath , I put it in gear 1 and the car still didn't move... I let my foot go on the clutch whilst still in 1st gear and it never stalled.. Could this be a clutch disc or something? Lately when out my foot on the clutch it's been making the odd squeaky noise ...

Any help will be appreciated, thank you

When you let your foot go of the clutch whilst in gear did the car move at all?

It sounds like your clutch cable has gone.

First thought i had was your clutch as well, how much play do you have? How many miles is on it? City or highway?

What year and model vehicle is it? Could be as simple as a cable but without knowing what vehicle it is very hard to troubleshoot.

I study car mechanics, If your lucky it's only the clutch cable if there is one..... Certain type of cars do not work with cables if this is so in your case, then the clutch box might be defective or the moving spoons from the clutch might have been broken...... Depending on your problem which you stated i only can take look so far as from the computer.

Sounds like the clutch pressure plate isn't engaging,
might have an expensive repair in your future :/

First thing you can do is to step in your car and try to pull it into reverse if you feel resistants like usual it's not the cable.

Sound like it could be either the axle or the CV joint.
ETA. I think if it was the clutch, you wouldn't get it into gear to start with...not without a lot of crunching...

If your foot slams straight to the floor with no resistance then its not the cable. If the cable breaks then there would be no play in the clutch pedal.

Mmmm, try this >

If you don't hear any noise during these four steps, then your problem is probably not the clutch. If you hear the noise at idle and it goes away when the clutch is pressed, it may be an issue in the contact point between the fork and pivot ball.

Start your car, set the parking brake, and put the car in neutral.
With your car idling, listen for a growling noise without pushing the clutch in. If you hear something, it's most likely a problem with the transmission. If you don't hear a noise, proceed to step three.

With the car still in neutral, begin to push the clutch and listen for noise. If you hear a chirping noise as you press, it's most likely the clutch release, or throw-out bearing. If you don't hear a noise, proceed to step four.
Push the clutch all the way to the floor. If you hear a squealing noise, it's probably the pilot bearing or bushing.

I don't think its the cable, though do the checks above to find the problem

Neither has anything to do with the gear box or selecting gears.

If it used to make a clicking/rubbing sound but not any more;

I believe that your clutch disc is fully warn-out. Some can be adjusted up mechanically, some automatically.

sounds like a u joint or your after clutch drive line somewhere......

It's your throw out bearing.

It engages your clutch and puts it on the flywheel.

Get it fixed soon. It could tear up your transmission.

She said she was able to select a gear and when releasing the clutch it made a "knocking" noise, so it sounds to me as though the power isn't getting to the wheels. Being a Civic, it's front wheel drive so still sounds like a CV joint to me.

After looking this model car up I would look to this as the likely culprit as well. (the bearing)
