Did you address the jerking issue or just keep driving with the jerking until it died?

The jerking and the fact that your car will not run at all now appears to be tied into the ignition system. (spark plugs, distributor cap, ignition coils, ignition wires, timing belt, etc)

When stopped at traffic light or just stopped with motor running it has a jerking motion, have just had one of the fuel injectors replaced, it looses power when driving has plenty of power taking off

If you have a check engine light on, pull the code. Jerking while stopped is often a sign of needing a tune up, but it can be other things too. If it's been a while since last tune up, change plugs and wires.

Car is missing now check engine light is on

Is this two different problems? The check engine light can sometimes be reset :
If the engine is misfiring, then that page should also help you find more information about it with the onboard diagnostics.

If it misses for a while, then starts running fine, it could be a sticky fuel injector.

Jerking while driving

If you park your vehicle for a long time, you run the risk of having contaminated fuel in the tank. This happened to a car my wife purchased, and it was the last thing I found. It proved to be the problem. What you need to do is remove the fuel from the tank and then have the tank flushed. Fill it with fresh fuel and replace the fuel filter.
