If you have gas in the exhaust then you are running the engine too rich, and too much fuel fouls the plugs thus causing the rough idle. I suggest you look at your 02 sensor(s). They are probably fouled too. 02 sensors send a signal to the ECM as to the air to fuel mixture and the ECM then sends a signal to the injectors as too how much fuel to allow into the combustion chamber.

Runs rough, water coming out of tailpipe if I was a betting man I would bet my last twinki that you have a cracked head or head gasket. water is crossing over into your exaust valves causing the water to come out of your tailpipe and the decreased power in the runs rough is from the compression leak.
