The thermostat is located on the cylinder head, under a roundish housing, under the distributor cap. Just follow the big hose to the cylinder head. You have to remove the air intake collector to see it. If you do replace the thermostat, make sure that the one that you buy has a small "wiggle valve" on the outer edge of it. This bleeds air pockets from the system, and it is important that it is there. Additionaly, the "wiggle valve" should be installed with it pointing straight up (12 o'clock). This is critical. Regarding the sealer; the thermostat is sealed by an O-ring; no need for any sealer.
Remember to be careful, whilst draining the coolant, if it is hot.
Hope this helps, and Thanks for choosing FixYa.

What could be the cause why my toyota paseo 1991 keeps on boiling in the overglow bottle even though my car is not overheating

I doubt it's actually boiling over. More than likely you've blown the head gasket on the car and the pistons are pushing compressed air back into the water system and it coming out the bottle. If you continue to drive the car the gasket will deteriorate and the coolant will start to get into the cylinders and oil. At that point you may be looking at crank bearing damage and a warped or cracked head.
