The last time that you drove it, you didn't happen to start it up and then move it a short distance without letting it warm up fully, and then shut it back down did you?Like, for example did you start it up to move it out of somebody's way in the driveway or just pull it out of the garage and then shut it down?

No - drove it at highway speeds for 2 hours.
Does it seem to be cranking more quickly than normal? Is it the V6 or the 2.0t?
