Mike..

I'd say if it needs a tune up, then do so...

Otherwise..it sounds like a C motor. Good runners, live forever...not known to be the worlds strongest motor that'll move the car merely by lifting your foot.

Default Maybe the brakes are dragging>?<

Check the brakes real close. I had a bad rotor, and I'm not out of the woods yet, but put on a good used rotor and matching pads, (counter rotating), but the brake dragging is much less than it was. Sorry for rambling, it'* late.
