Default 2002 Saturn SC2 misfiring

So this is an add-on of a previous post. I am still looking at an 02 Saturn SC2. There was an offer on it already but now the dealer says that the engine is misfiring at idle. I had a similar issue with saturns in the past, particularly in the L series. I hope this guy is smart enough to have checked the spark plugs, because that's all my knowledge can think of. Can you list me some other reasons? And the cost of these fixes? Thanks. He is willing to drop the price to 1800 if he can't fix it. It was selling for 2800

...
1994 Saturn SL2
2001-2013
420k+ miles, scrapped for $300

2001 Saturn L100
2012-2014
Bought at 93500 miles, totalled at 115000
Timing Chain snapped at 97500 miles

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Default Re: 2002 Saturn SC2 misfiring

There are a multitude of things that can cause misfiring, ranging from cheap/easy to costly. If a dealer is willing to drop the price $1000, I'm guessing this isn't just plugs or wires. Is this going to be an "as-is" no-warranty sale? Buyer beware...

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
