Is this a power shift transmission on your car . If so , there have been so many problems and recalls with that car and especially the transmission it is impossible to say .

I know crazy, no lights on just running rough. Plugs didnt look great to be honest. But all okay at the moment, fingers crossed.

Check them in a couple of weeks or if it start acting up again, the fouling can be indicative of a head gasket or intake leak.

Check the belt that runs the oil pump. It's not too uncommon for this belt to loosen or fail causing strange sensations. It's what turned me away from buying one.
