When Changing gears the clutch went slack and was not able to find any of them, then my engine failed and had t pull over, tried to restart the car and the engine would not start but ticked over and made a crunching noise every time, also the clutch is still slack.

Do you
have the same problem?

Your clutch has probably lost some of the friction material, but it should still start in neutral. Could be a mechanical problem with the main shaft splines, removal is required to check this out.
