1993 Honda Prelude - Crunch

Please NEED HELP !!!
So I was driving my 1993 Honda prelude(manual transmission) and I was going in reverse. while I was going in reverse I thought I was going over a branch(because I heard crunching noises) and while I was done reversing and I put it in first my car didn’t move at all but the engine was still in and running I just didn’t move . While I was doing some more investigation I could move the car but it was vary violent and shaking the car and sounded so bad . And my friend is telling me it’s the cv axle but I’m kinda thinking that it’s the clutch or my transmission went out .
Please help .

Seeing i can’t see your car, I’m going to take a wild guess.

My guess is that it is probably the cv axle or the clutch or the transmission.

The only help we can give over the internet is to suggest you tow it where either you or a mechanic can diagnose the problem.

Well I looked under the car today and it was in nutrual and they right axle was moving on it’s own and the wheel wasn’t turning .

I would say @It_s_Me got it right - Broken CV joint! Much less expensive than a trans or clutch.
