Question: Is it a quiz to know what's wrong with my car or what?

when i turn on my car, it turns normally. i drive it for a while(like 30 minutes) and then the engine lose power and the rpm is near to "0" but the car is still on. when i hit the gas pedal, the rpm increase but the engine sound like half working with a bit power and the car's speed turns very slow. Now i changed the fuel pump, the fuel filter, i cleaned the fuel tank, and i changed the spark plugs; problem exist!
