Should I be replacing just the bad one? Or all 6? It's a stock engine, so just the generic injectors at Autozone'll do fine, right?

If you have them out then have them cleaned by a shop that has the tools to do the job. Nothing is more annoying than having to do something twice.

It's just as much work to replace one injector as to replace all six. And if one went bad, the others may be not too far behind. So you might want to just do all six while you're in there. Plus if you replace just one, the flow on that new injector might be significantly different than the other five old injectors.

The flow rates on All the injectors I have tested over the years are pretty close within 1% usually.

How is it bad? is the body leaking fuel? Is the coil bad? Is it stuck open or closed? If it's mechanical a cleaning usually will free stuck parts. I charge $60 to clean and do all the balance check and install new orings spacer rings and pintle caps.
