My car will go forward but not in reverse and it sounds terrible under the hood and before it did this it was making a little pop noise when I would turn the stering wheel to the left and I just crank my car up one day and put it reverse and something popped and fell apart inside and it will not go in reverse

A similar type of thinking goes into diagnosing car trouble. ... response issue, but after shifting into gear the engine's RPMs will surge, but the car won't move ..... Can anyone please explain why my car cant go in reverse but can drive forward
Sounds like the shift cable is off the transmission under the hood. Raise the hood and check to see if the cable is moving the linkage going into the transmission when the shift lever is moved in the car. Be sure to have park brake on.
with the engine off locate a large bolt on front of engine using a large appropreate sized socket wrench gentlly but with some force rock engine using wrench as a handle if engine moves more than 1/8" in respect to car body yeap you got a broken motor mount you'll want to get this fixed soon as it eventually will cause the transmission housing to crack and break
Just a guess, but it sounds like the U-joint on your drive shaft could be going…With a cool vehicle of course, you should be able to lay under the vehicle and physically grab the drive shaft and turn it back and forth and hear a clang or feel the looseness etc…You won’t hear the pop till the torque is applied...It’s not an expensive job, of terribly difficult to repair yourself…tg
If under the hood, most likely the engine has a bad motor mount. The engine will "twist" slightly to one direction when driving forward and "twist" in the opposite direction when you drive in reverse.
When it is twisted (in reverse) an engine pulley or fanbelt is scraping on some plastic part, or whatever, and making the noise.
If not under the hood, it may be one of the front brake pads that have a "worn brake pad" sensor. The sensor is an L-shaped piece of metal that scrapes the rotor when the brake pad backing gets too close to the rotor, hence worn brake pads.
If the noise is somewhere else, maybe another "expert" has a suggestion.
there is nothing under the floor of the pedal will make that terrible squeak sound. have your belt check make sure they are tight and not slipping, it will also make that loud squeak sound if it slips. go to auto parts store and purchase a can of WD40 and spray it on all the pulley under the hood. have the engine off while spraying the pulleys. don't worry if it get on other parts of the engine. Common problems with pulleys squeaking on many vehicle.
