over heating and power loss

i have a v6 03 stang 5 speed manual trans, recently started making a loud hissing noise from the passenger side of the engine, i thought was a manifold leak(had one before) but mt gpa said its fine and so today i changed the water pump and drove about 3 miles and noticed it was overheating, it started overheating baddd so i pulled over and let it cool down and decided to just go back home, on my home it started overheating again but this time started decelerating, it would go down to about 10 mph and i would have to shift down to second just to keep the car moving, i shifted into third about 25/30 mph and then it would start slowing down again, had to drive home in first and second gears at about 10 to 20 mph because it wouldnt accelerate any faster, no smoke from engine, no weird smells, oh and the temp gauge just completely dropped to nothing when it started decelerating. im thinking maybe fuel pump?? head gasket?? also my power steering is very loud and i noticed its all bubbly and nasty looking recently after changing power steering hose. someone please HELLPPP
