The first thing we always tell someone with your problem is to change ignition parts. Since the dealer hanged plugs, he should have also change the spark plug wires. If they are original, and they probably are with 30k, that is most likely your problem.

How do you mean not hooked up? No belt or what?

That can't be good. Mater's makeover II is a thread on installing one. Far as the plug and antifreeze, a compression check should read low on # two cylinder if head gasket is leaking.
