Not a common problem
it is very rare for any crank to break
if there is a history of engine rebuild with a crankshaft regrind and that left a square edge on a journal , that would be a reason
hydraulic locking may have twisted a crank
but again there would have been a major overhaul involved
if the engine was modified for power performance ( hotted up) then the extra rpms and compressions pressures would add to the beak problem
but generally no , it is not a manufacturer problem as such

When was my car manufactured?

The vin number is the model year. If the door tag says manufactured in '06, usually given as month and year, would be actually manufactured in late '06 as an '07 model car. Actual date of manufacture is often important in ordering parts, as modifications can occur during that model year's production run.

2002 x type .. is it possible to OVER fill the transmission fluid..if so will it cause the transmission to not move in reverse?

02-06 Jaguar X-types should all have a sealed transmission which cannot have fluid added to them but by the transmission shop. My wife's 02 x-type had the tranny go out completely at about 80K. Cost us $3500 and our transmission guy said it was a very common problem/manufacturing defect.
If it doesn't go into reverse odds are the transmission is on its way out. Good luck!
