You have a head gasket leak that the Bars leak could not stop. I hope you did not ruin your engine but it sounds like bad news.

That stuff is only good when it catches a potential leak early on. Yours is too far gone it seems for any stop-gap solution like Bars. Get it to a mechanic's and let them do a compression test on it, but be prepared for the bad news.
