    If it was on cylinder 1, 3 or 5 I would replace then. I had the #1 fail about a year ago and now the #3. It costs over $500.00 to Disassemble the engine and fix the things. Therefore the extra $200.00 for the replacement injectors as opposed to the additional $1000 labor and additional 6 days down time of the van in a sequence failure, seems a reasonable preventive measure to me. 1999 with 105k miles. The mechanic doing the job thinks I am nuts but it ant his money and time! The injectors on the ft of the engine are easier to get to and 1 can afford to bet on them. I also think the on the back of the engine get hotter and this causes then to fail sooner.

How often should I replace the fuel filter?

ok a car that you got used is never a bad idea to replace the fuel filter it is basic and low cost more importantly you should look up the year make and model and perform the required listed maintenance, when you get a used car like i always do you should get up to date on all required fixes because if you want ti to last and you care you never can be sure if the old owners took care of this stuff.-

What are the Mercury Villager 1998,must comuns problems? I want an pverall must comon issues..

The most common problem effecting 1st generation Mercury Villagers (1993-1998) are engine related. Fuel pumps are prone to failure so make sure you change the fuel filter every 50,000 miles to help prevent the fuel pump from overworking. You may also experience faulty fuel injectors so use a good fuel injector cleaner like Seafoam or Techron every 6 months. Other than this they are not bad vehicles and can be a good buy due to low resale value.

Problem with injectors - if one goes bad should all be replaced

Generally, if one injector goes bad, it is not necessary to replace all the others. Try replacing the one bad injector first and see how it runs. If you have any more questions, let me know.

Usually plugged fuel filters and/or bad pumps cause loss of power at the high end (full throttle) when you are sucking down the fuel not so much at the low end.

Rough idles can be a lot of things, usually something to do with the fuel mixture or timings. Dirty injectors, distributor problems, streatched out timing chain/belts... those are a few common rough idle issues.

Has the fuel economy gone down? Does it still have good acceleration?

95 maxima rough idle

The injector could definitely trigger a misfire code, but you also mentioned that you had a mass airflow sensor code , that code code be responsible for te sluggish moment of the vehicle and rpm going up and down. However if you have a misfire onCyl#6 and the coil and the plug is good the ONLY other thing to cause a mis-fire would be the injector. To check the injector get a NOID light, you can get one at almost any auto-parts place. To use unplug injector plug from the bad injector and connect it to NOID light the light should have a steady PULSE/ligt flickering. If light flickers fine then injector is bad and will need to be replaced. If light doesn't flicker or flickers intermittently then you may have a bad wiring to that injector. Check if wiring is good, then you may have a bad cam sensor or sensor gear. Good Luck and contact if you need more help. Thanks for using FIX YA
