03 jag x-type: 2.5l manual trans. @ 75 mph, rpm's went up speed went down, felt like driving on a washboard. rpm's came back down, speed went back up. Off the highway, pulling out from red light - loud "pow" then no movement - car shifts through all gears, but it's like the transmission is disconnected. Is this clutch, fly wheel, or internal workings?

It sounds like the clutch was slipping and then after it got hot enough, when taking off from a stop the center part of the disc broke in 2.
