My car has a manual transmission.
Hi there. The clunk that you heard and the grinding sound came from the transmission. The noise was a gear breaking a tooth off and causing the transmission to no longer engage the teeth from the main shaft to the counter shaft inside the transmission. Also the synchronizer could have chipped off a tooth causing the gears to lock up and grind. I recommend seeking out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you with your transmission issue.
