I feel sorry for you it sounds like you got ripped off 700.00 hnd dollors to replace plug is outrages and would be the last thing in the chain of events that could be wrong with the vehicle that anybody who know anything engines would look for .
The first thing you need to know is what is the condution of the antifreeze you can get a little tester at any parts store that will tell you .
Next look for engine oil floating on top of the antifreeze in recovery bottle or under radaitor cap this is no good .It means the oil and antifreeze are mixing this should never happen .Also check the dip stick engine oil for white foam and the oil filler cap .
This condution means you have a gasket issue eighter intake manifold or head gasket witch also could make it leak on the out side of the engine as well as leak inside the engine.
If you don't have any of these problems things are looking up and you should have the radiator pressure tested it should hold 14.2 lbs at all times .If it holds the test replace the cap .
But more then likely because you have a 2002 the radiator is the problem if you can't find leaky hoses or connections
Chevy has had problems with cooling systems for 30 years along with intake maniflod gaskets .
So do some tests but if you have never change the collent and back flushed the system .You should have and this wouldn't be happening .Antifreeze dosn't last more then 5 years or so no matter what they try to tell you .

Where is the fuse for the inside dash lights


On the passenger side front. Open the door and you will see a small door on the end of the dash. Open it and it should be there. If not, there are two more fuse boxes under the hood. One behind the wiper washer on driver side and one behind the anti-freeze reservoir on the passenger side.

Steam from antifreeze coming from right side of engin


I would check the hoses in that area. It maybe the the water pump bearing shaft seal. There is usually a small drain hole towards the bottom of the pump, that will leak anti-freeze when the seal goes bad. With an inspection mirror, you may be able to see if anti-freeze is leaking from the pump.

Antifreeze leaking from the front of the car , by where the wheels are. Why is this happening?


Had same recent problem. Leaking anti-freeze near passenger-side under engine. Inspect all hose connections and area around water pump and did not find source of leak. Took car to dealer and they checked and told me it was leaking from timing cover gasket and head gasket. I found the head gasket hard to believe so I went to a trusted mechanic and he did a dye test that found the leak was in fact the timing cover gasket.

Full heat (no control) on drivers side, cooling on passenger side


The HVAC system has an actuator on the passengers side and one on the drivers side that control mode and temperature. The left side actuator on yours has failed and will need replacing.
