Any fault lights coming on, or flashing of the the gear selection indicator?

Like a manual, 5th is where 3rd is, just over a bit (or up in the case of the selector rod). Think I'd start with a recal procedure, which, as luck would have it, I've got on my clipboard :D

You'll need AlfaDiag and a diag lead to do this, of course. If you've not already got it, it's invaluable for Sele ownership!

The temperature thing might be indicative of one of the range sensors going wonky. You can try swapping them around on the actuator to see what happens...
