Default Replacing Fuel Injectors

How hard is it to replace the fuel injectors in a 3.0? I have a terrible miss in the engine and my 6th cylinder is completely dead....I'm going to replace all the spark plugs cause they need it anyway buy if i have to replace one injector im going to go ahead and replace them all and get better quality ones...Any ideas on which ones are better? which ones should i get guys

If you are just wanting a stock performance injector then just stick with motorcraft. They were engineered for the engine. As to how hard is it, its not hard but the injectors need to be charged up with the fuel lines so a shop would have to do that.

haha, was that too much for ya? LOL

Do you just want stock rplacement injectors or injuctors that will give more hp? Note if you do performance injectors then they are very expensive, lower gas mileage, and needs to be tuned into the computer through a programmer.

"the injectors need to be charged up with the fuel lines so a shop would have to do that"
Please clarify, perhaps a spelling mistake?

I don't know if it was but I replaced mine at home well my #6 one and I had no problems but to do all of them I am not to sure about...
But to save you time and money I would definetly stick with the motorcraft ones. I hope this helps.

Well, things might have changed with newer injectors but in our old 88 plymouth colt when you would either run out of gas or put new injectors on the engine they would need to be charged, or "synced up", with the fuel system so there wernt bubbles or sputtering from the injector. The new injector systems may not have to get that done. I just know it used to cost $75 an injector to charge them.

With how advanced the coumputers are these days maybe they can correct the sputtering from air bubbles themselves. The old systems and all were a pain in the but. The car would sputter and everything else like it was misfiring until they were charged up.
