Help with engine care and oil

I have just bought my first Alfa 147 2.0 twin spark (2005)
I am asking for some help with what to do and what
Products to use.

I know I need to check the oil and coolant every 1000 miles
But what do I use all of it is very new to me and I don't
Understand what is what.

What else do I need to do to keep her running perfectly and
Keeping her reliable?!?

This forum is the best start you can have IMO, get a KKL lead and software to read any error codes only cost you 10 just search on here, next find a realy good indi local to you then find out when your belts and fluids were changed and If they are due then do them, dont forget to include things like brake/clutch fluid and anifreeze as the age of your car now it should all have been changed at least once.
then when thats done i'd get the car up on some ramps and have a good look uner it armed with a wire brush and some undercoating stuff and make sure all drain holes are clear and under the bonnet where ever water can get to like top of inner wings and clean out all the dead leaves ect

I'm sure i've missed quite a few things but Its everything I have been doing in the last year and Its worth it, one of the most important things was changing the battery that was 6 years old....... all the random stuff I had has stopped like random error codes/windows stoped working ect and the car even feels better so I'd check if you have the original!
hope that helps :-)
