Check your fuel pressure and filter. Also check to make sure your fuel pressure regulator is not blown out. Simple check is to pull vacuum line off at regulator and see if there is fuel present in that line. If there is then the regulator is bad .
Hope this helps;

2000 ford f150 4.2 eng. 5 speed has a miss when you give it gas

If it is a serious miss, you should have a code in the computer telling you which cylinder.
If you have replaced the ignition parts and there are no vac leaks, the next phase would be fuel including the injector.

Changed plugs and wires and put on a new igntition coil and it is stillmissing on 2 cylinders

I believe the Mustang has 3 coils for a V6, and 4 for a V8, each coil controlling two cylinders. First you need to check and find which two plugs are misfiring, and if they go to the same plugs. It may be that more than one coil is defective and the coil pack needs replacing. With the vehicle running pull one spark plug wire at a time to find the missing cylinders. If the engine slows or starts running rough, that cylinder is firing, if you pull the wire and there is no change you have found your missing cylinder, from there trace the wire back to see which coil it plugs into. Also, make sure your plug wires are not touching each other and are in the spacers the factory installed. If you still can not find the problem it may be in the main computer. Most autoparts will run a diagnostic check for free.

1991 ford mustang, misses under 2000rpm replaced wires distributer cap,plugs, checked timing,checked for vaccum leaks,replaced gas filter and fuel pump. when driving if the tachometer goes under 2000 rpms...

If you've recently added (or oiled) a cotton air filter like a K&N, extra oil can foul the MAF sensor causing drivability issues. Most helpful thing you could do is pull the codes though and post them on here, as it could be many things... bad O2 sensor, intake leak past the MAF, failing fuel pressure regulator (my main guess) and others. It'd help if you listed what engine your car has as well and how many miles it has, and if you have this problem under load only or even when it is in idle.
Pull the codes.

Car jerks while driving at steady speeds

Did you have the wires replaced also?? If not I would replace both the plugs & the wires all at the same time.You may have carbon tracking on your wires & plugs.What Year is Saturn?? If it's a 91-94 You most likely have a EGR Valve floating due to a weak internal spring.It will cause a surge miss at constant throttle.Hope This Helps!!
