2002 Jaguar X-Type • 80,000 miles

I was turning on to the express way going to work, I noticed there was a semi truck coming so I put my car in sport mode to pass quickly my car reved real high as I passed I noticed it and then I took it out of sport mode as I passed about 1 minute after I turned on to the exit ramp my car did two hard jerks as if I had put it in 1st or 2nd gear and I lost all power and I coasted down the express way with no power steering, I then proceeded two put my car in park after stopping and tried to start it, it made a real loud clunking sound from underneath and stayed running for about 30 seconds and died, I kept trying to start it and it would only run for 3 seconds and stall out, I jumped out popped the hood and could smell something burning but I couldnt tell what it was only that the sound came from underneath, from underneath the engine area, what could this be? Torque converter, transmission, engine?
