    Too many things could cause over heating. It is hard to guess without being able to do some basic diagnostic tests. The thermostat could be stuck closed not allowing coolant to flow to the radiator.If it is a coolant loss issue the coolant expansion tanks crack, pressure testing the cooling system would find the leak if this were the case.The X Type could have a V6 2.5 or 3.0L engine not sure if they were affected but the V8 Jaguar had water pump problem where the impeller in the water pump failed. I can't remember the year range but some Jaguars had a fan control module at the lower part of the fan shroud that failed and caused the fans not to operate properly. Get this checked out they are expensive cars to fix!

    My 2005 X Type was overheating and I took it to the dealer for repair ( It is a second car with only about 20,000 miles and it's mostly garaged.) The dealer said it was the thermostat and replaced it at a cost of about $400.00 I immediately had the same problem with overheating again, a few days later. I do hear a noise when the fans are running, and I think the previous answer about the fan module is most likey the cause. I'm going to take his advice and try that.
