I just finished replacing #4 along with new seals on all injectors. When I bought the replacement all I could find on short notice was an aftermarket injector from Autozone. I understand that when replacing a single injector you are supposed to make sure it matches the others. (i.e. the OE others have a blue ring)

The new one looks like the others with very minor differences. The car runs as good as before and #4 is firing.

What problems, symptoms might I experience if the brand X injector is not an identical replacement?

Thanks!

Is the injector u purchased the exact replacement for your model car and year?
if so, you should have no problem.
What is important here is the flow rate and the type of signal they need to be activated.
I think is current or voltage the options.

so, if your car is running fine I recommend to have a better balance of fuel delivery between the cylinders, a good cleanup of the f.i. system at your local pepboys, western auto of autozone or a good mechanic, not a simple can in tank system but a can in hose system I think it is made by 3M

hope this helps

Re: Thanks!

Thanks for the response!

I just returned from driving 20 miles and the car is running fine. The new injector was sold as an exact replacement, but didn't look exactly like the old ones. I read where when changing all injectors just put in all of the same kind but when changing just one injector it's important that the new one be matched up to the old.

Since it's running good I'll assume no problem. But... want to make sure that nothing's waiting to surprise me later.
