RPMS going madd

Ok, Heres my problem, I hope someone can help, am really worried about it: frown
for the last couple of weeks Ive noticed that my RPM are getting kind of low and low and low, Ive lost power, fuel economy its pretty bad, etc. I dont know if everything its related to the same problem. This happens usually when am about to stop, lets say am barely getting off the freeway and Ive been going 65 to 75 MPH and about to stop, the RPMs just drop really bad I thing under the 500s and the car struggle to stay on in another words it kind of tuns off on me, so I have to shift it to N so it wont turn off. (BTW I have ECT transmission). Am thinking in replacing the spark plugs, fuel pump, 02 sensor, and cleaning the MAF but I dont exactly know if thats gonna do anything to it|
So If any of you guys have gone through this before Ill appreciate any suggestions or any advice. cry
Here are the spec of my car:

2000 GTS
ECT Transmission
89000 Miles
everything its pretty much stock on this car I havent done much to it|

Yah AIC & MAF. Clean those first before you start replacing parts.
