plugs may have fouled for some reason, any water dripping from tailpipe?

Im thinking possible blown head gasket, just because of the overheat and rough running.

It's likely a head gasket. If you keep pushing it, the engine will fail entirely.

    The car has a rough idle, slow pick up when starting out at lights, stop signs, etc. While driving the car it shakes. It seems like the engine is straining. Also, the check engine light is on.
