My 2005 x5 diesel BMW miss fires when I accerate and looses power at 100kph I have replaced fuel and air filters and run 3tanks of injector cleaner what could be the problem ?

I am leaning toward a fuel problem. Loss of mid-range power, misses or pops, and backfires are indicators of not having enough fuel. I am guessing some of your injectors are still not fully functioning.

Missing under load, When accerating or climbing a hill my LOW milage 4runner is starting to miss. what could it be? Spark plugs or ?

Start with the simple things first. When was the last time you had a complete tune up? "Missing" could indicate bad spark plugs, bad spark plug wires, or bad cylinders. Change the plugs first, then go from there.

Engine occasionally acts if it is missing out during slow acceleration. What could this possibly be?

There and may factors that cause a missing during accerating. Is the air filter clean? Has the car been tuned up? are the spark plugs clean? Has the gas filter been changed? Let me know if I can be of further help.

I have a 1998 Mercury Topaz that starts to miss under acceleration and can hardly make 100k per hour. Ignition system is ok. The problem seems to be in the fuel system. New fuel filter installed and...

Even tho the ignition seems ok, I'd check the ignition cables to the plugs. Sometimes these break down over time... it will idle and drive ok, but when you need power for a hill, or acceration, that's when the wires faults start to show up.
A quick test is to put the car in drive with your left foot on the brake FIRMLY while you press the accerator... if the miss and lack of power shows up, it's usually the ignition cables to the plugs.
