Hmmm 156 1.9JTD mjet 16v oil question

Hi, i have 2005/06 reg alfa 156 1.9JTD mjet 16v veloce with 113500 on the clock and as far as i know theres 10/30 or 10/40 semi synthetic engine oil. It was changed just before i got the car like 3 months ago. I think car works quite loud is that normal !?
Was wondering could that also affect engine temperature to be most of the time low, like getting just above 60C in 30miles?
what engine oil is best for my car ?
where to check the gearbox oil and if theres enough/it is good ? any reccomended replacement oil? (6speed manual)
how to know if engine coolant is still good and dont need to change?
how frequent it should be changed?
appreciate any tips

Engine oil should be 5W40 synthetic.

Gear oil level check is via a tiny dipstick on the diff housing.

Selenia 20K is not suitable for a JTD engine.

Why don't you just use the correct spec oil.
It doesn't have to be Selenia/Petronas, it just needs to meet the required spec.
