Im looking into buying a 92 Probe, the guy who is selling it says the spark plugs vibrate, is this normal in probes or does it have a bad seal or bad plugs or bad motor??

That sounds like the spark plug threads are stripped out, Probes were never that good of a car and the pits to diagnosis. I would run the other way.

My thoughts exactly. You could very well be walking into a $2000+ head replacement job. Keep shopping! HTH. -Jim
