P0172 and P0175 on your Jaguar X-type

P0172 and P0175 are for the banks on the engine are too rich. Let me break it down for you, the ECM (engine computer) is always monitoring the Oxygen sensors. When the oxygen sensors detect little oxygen on the exhaust (little oxygen means too much fuel) for a predetermined period of time then it flags one or both these codes. Which brings us to an important conclusion, if both codes are flagged at the same time then there is a problem that affects both sides of the engine. If only one code is flagged then there is a problem that affects the respective side of the engine. You don't need to know a lot of mechanics and electronics, just follow the guide that follows:

If both P0172 and P0175 are flagged:
If only one of the codes is flagged:
