Does any one know of a replacement fuel injector I can pick up at a local auto part store for a MCX? I had a bad tank of gas through the engine and I noticed one of my injectors did not sound right last night. Thought I would start looking for a spare before it actually stopped working.

Sounding funny, with knock sensors I don't think you would get a missfire, just poor performace because of the retarded timimng.

What size injectors? You could also pull all the injectors and have them cleaned flow tested for probably less than a single replacement you by at a dealer

how would knock sensors stop a bad injector misfiring?

Knocksensor will retard the spark curve or put the engine in "limp" mode

If you unplug the fuel injector that is suspect does the sound go away?

I'll try unplugging it tonight when I go skiing.
