Why only the front 3 plugs? You could have an ohms imbalance for the coils to fire properly, so replace the other 3 and if you haven't replaced the spark plug wires yet do that while your there. Next change your fuel filter then check the fuel pressure.

Was gonna do the back ones too, but couldnt reach them

If it did't sound like that before your oil change don't drive it until you double check the oil level! My friends truck sounded like that and he seized the engine because he ran it until there was barely any or no oi in it.
