I have no spark on my 1990 Ford E-150 5.8L. I have replaced the coil.

Are you getting power to the coil? If coil voltage is low, suspect the radio capacitor is shorted. If the voltage is good, the problem may be the ignition module. One other possibility is a problem with the distributor pickup coil or connector. See 2nd page at link below.

It has a knocking sound in the motor and 0power,and i can have my truck in 4th gear and full throttel and still only will go 25 mph's

First of all, stop driving it and don't try to start it again.
You've got serious trouble. At the least, you've got a bad valve lifter or something worse. Even starting it one more time is likely to lead to much worse trouble. If you're lucky, you'll only have to rebuild the top end. If you're not lucky, you're looking at a complete rebuild.

My '97 Jimmy misses when I accelerate and lunges when stopped.My fuel injection was cleaned and fuel filter was changed last week and my service engine light is still on.

My 96 started out that way, then got worse and worse. Got all kinds of trouble codes,like multiple misfires, maf sensor bad, map sensor, O2senssor rich. Turned out to be the distributor cap and rotor. Rotor had carbon track on the backside. Other than that, they looked perfect. New ones solved the problem and all the trouble codes went away. All that misfiring was causing all the sensors to throw false codes. I figured out I needed to look for something not so obvious when the $100 maf didn;t change a thing.
