This could be caused by a few different components or sensors.Since it is low we most likely have a leak or a faulty compressor. The front air springs are more common and they will cause the compressor to fail.A Jag factory tool or equivalent is needed to communicate with the air suspension control module in order to read the exact faults.We can start the vehicle and wait for the compressor to come on. It is located behind the driver corner of the front bumper. Once the compressor comes on listen I each wheel well for an air leak.Let me know.

I smell a strong oder of gas and I assume out was and i would like to fix both sides at the same time whether one side does or does not need it

it is always a good idea to replace them ijn pairs but they are costly from Jag. You can also source the parts from places like Arnott.
