How much to fix misfiring cylinder 1 and cylinder 2?

(2003 Ford Escape)
in San Jose, CA on October 05, 2013
car is misfiring first 1000 rotations? on first two cylinders. basically it seems to run fine except for when it starts up but once it starts going it drives fine. although every once in a while i have to refill the coolant tank because it seems to run low–-somehow related to the misfires??

Yes, it is related, coolant is seeping into 1&2 when engine is off, for a while, due to a defective/blown head gasket, most likely but 'possible' cracked cylinder head (Bank-1). Misfires occur until coolant is burned from cylinders then smooths out. See a mechanic for repairs!
