Fuel Injector replacement?

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

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?
