Alfa GT 2.0 JTS engine oil

Hello,
I have just bought a Alfa GT 2.0 JTS and I live in Sweden!
I love my new ride!!!

Before I had a Alfa 147 1.6 TS and had problems with the engine sounded like an diesel on low rpms, maybe caused by to thin oil in the engine (used 10-40W then).

My GT now has Mobil 1 10-40W semi-synthetic oil, at some website I see recomendations of 10-60W fully-synthetic. Some say 5-50W.

What is the difference What is best for my car, some help is appreciated please! I drive normal, no street racing!

Thanks!


Sincerely,
Pe-Ola

I thought the manual said 10W40 for the JT, but I used 10W60 and worked best.
Anyway, DavidC should know best, plus, when I used 10W40 the engine burned some oil, but with the 10W60 none was used.
