While driving on a highway I heard a rattle in the engine, then it heard something break off, my brakes became hard I was having trouble stopping. After I couldn't accelerate and the car turned off. While trying to restart my car I could only hear a click then the engine started to smoke. I had recently experienced a harsh gear shift while driving.
