The car is in a parking lot right now about an hour a way (Madison) so I can't take a look at it. I changed the spark plugs about a year and a half ago and they looked fine, I think. I've done little things on my own here and there so it hasn't been into the shop in a while. Last time was at a technical college to get the AC fixed.
It doesn't get near as much love as my boat, but it gets the oil changed regularly and if anything pops up it gets fixed.
Something hasn't felt quite right about it but not bad enough that I thought it needed to be taken in. Just seemed like there was a little too much friction or something, that was even after an oil change.
If it seemed to be fighting something, it should have been checked out immediately. I agree- you may have spun a bearing or something but if it was low on oil, there's no apparent explanation for it at this time.
