2001 Eclipse problems

I am in the process of purchasing a 2001 mitsubishi eclipse. It is a friend of mine that owns it, and they said the problem is that it is running, but misfiring, and it is getting bad MPG. They checked, and they said that the only problem they see, is the valve cover gasket is leaking oil down on the spark plugs. Would this cause the problem? I am getting the car for $2500. So I think it is well worth it. any advice would be greatly appreciated. thanks!

Hi Jordan2011,
I would either put new plugs in or clean up what's already in there, including the wires & cap & if it didn't stop missing then I would probably pass on it.
