It's a 92 GLI 16v if that helps
So long story short, I pull up to the bank, my buddy asks to drive, say sure, tries to start in reverse. We hear a loud pop, whole car turns off. We get a jump, and the whole time we're driving down the road there's a loud knock in the front left side of the engine compartment. What's going on!?!
Wait, you started the car in Reverse?
Did your buddy clutch when starting the car??
Loud knocking on the front left side where the battery is or where the air filter is?
Give us some more details, anything! Make the story juicy!
Check you CV joints.

check your starter, could have damaged it, and you can get it started by pushing it and letting the clutch out? and does the clutch function after car is started?
