2000 OBW, Cylinder Misfiring?

Her mechanic told her it could be a $100 problem or it could be a $1000 problem, and he would have to look into it further to find out.
Any suggestions? What's are the likely culprits? Could this be related in any way to the leaky HG on the 2.5L engine?
btw - This forum has been a great resource. I've learned a bunch in the last few days, and I'm looking forward to diving in to my new vehicle's care and maintenance. This is our first Subaru, and I think its a good deal. I've check out the price on an engine from CCR so at the worst I'll have the purchase price + $3500 into a very reliable car at that point.

I would at least check the radiator expansion tank for sludge and bubbles after a good, long run. Both are telltale signs of internal HG failure.
Every car purchase, and particularly a used car purchase, entails a certain degree of risk. If the car was well mantained, the seller appears to be forthright, and the final price is attractive, you may find the car to be an acceptable risk.
On the other hand, it might be worth a few dollars to have YOUR own mechanic give the car a once over.

Anyone else with some encouraging words?

I've read (here in the forum) that the missing could be caused by a sticky valve? What should be my plan of attack when I get the car?
