HI, Ok, there is a known issue on this engine where the head bolt threads stretch and back out causing the headgasket to blow and start leaking. This will cause the current symptoms including the engine running rough as coolant is getting into the combustion chamber. A Block test needs to be done at this point to confirm the leaking head gaskets, and when confirmed, replace the head gaskets as well as the cylinder head bolts and the heads will need to be checked for being warped and machined if needed Please remember to rate service using the rating page so that I may receive credit.
