The grinding noise is the abs system,it works the traction control by braking the wheel that is slipping ,TURN IT OFF............ IN SNOW IT IS DANGEROUS TO USE "TCS"you want to get a wedge of snow under the wheels to help you STOP. I REPEAT ...TURN IT OFF,PLEASE.
what a lovely car real leather seats ,quiet engine state of the art for its time .Now for any jag to work properly you must first clean it ,treat the seats with a special cream every 3 mths ,then it will run forever but it does like being under cover in the garage with a sheet over it when not used ,do not bring it out when its raining either as it gets wet ,Now as for the overheating that should be no more than a thermo switch in the radiator which is cheap to buy ,about 10/12 euros ,make sure its filled with antifreeze or the heads will corrode in the water jackets .shouldnt have overheated whilst moving though even with no fan unless he was in heavy traffic with the AC on but even then the fan one of the two fans should run when AC is on.But on these vehicles mine is a 94 the AC fan doesnt come on whilst vehicle is moving only when the temperature in the front AC rad rises will fan come on ,Most off all enjoy this vehicle as its princess amongst cars and is a good investment for the future ,Also put you watch in the boot whilst driving as the ticking of the watch will drive you mad as its the only noise you hear whilst friving
do a compression test first please ,could have a burnt valve or a ring out causing excessive oil to pass into combustion chamber.Somebody son or daughter might borrowed vehicle and thrashed it doing drifting or burn outs ,has been known
could be the vanos making that crappy noise (which is safe and normal) or u may have a serious problem...cheapest thing to do is try a different oil/higher octane gas and see what happens, if it persists take it back in
Not sure if this is this answer, but I had a problem with a noise under the front end once....turned out to be the cowling under the front bumper....it was broken and it took a high speed to force it down enough to hit the road.
