I'd add a couple of bottles of "Bars Leaks" before blaming head gasket or cracked head. Bars Leak is a brand, not just a stop leak product and it's one of few that actually work.
Your description sounds like it could be a head gasket but try the above 1st.
The roughness problem could be related but it could also be vac leak, poor gas, moisture in gas, plugs, ICV - the list goes on. Need to know when last plug change, air filter, fuel filter,etc... to give you an idea of possibles.
Well.. the last oil and complete filterchange was done two weeks ago, sparkplugs I dont know.
What sparkplugs is recommended to the 6-cyl engine?
You'll have to check your owners manual or at the local parts store. Plugs vary by model year and I couldn't begin or attempt to perscribe a plug for your model.
And yes you can mix Bars Leak with just about any other stop leak - as I mentioned Bars Leak works - the others are pretty poor excuses for stop leak products.
You also might consider buying a DIY manual for your car.

Well.. I have Haynes but that is not very good. I've checked Bars Leaks and found out that there's a special one for headgaskets, but you have to flush the system first because it dont mix with coolant (the one i looked at).
Witch one of the different "Bars Leaks" products were you thinking of?
