The thermostat is located on the engine block on the left side when facing the car with the hood open. It is under the small metal coolant housing that connects to the water hose. There are two bolts, both 10 mm (I swear that half of a Honda can be taken apart with a 10 mm wrench!) that must be removed completely and then the little metal housing can be 'popped' off. I'd suggest you take the coolant hose off first as it is easier to work.
I suggest you change the thermostat every two years as they are cheap and easily replaced. If one seizes up, you may 'cook' the engine and that usually means the car is done. Not a very smart thing to do when the work takes about fifteen minutes and the part is less than twenty dollars. Also, the coolant MUST be changed every two years as the lubricants and special additives wear out. Some people go through the nonsense of putting the thermostat in hot water and watching if it closes or not. I say, why diddle around and hope that you get it right.
Also, make sure you put a new gasket on the thermostat against the engine block as it needs to seal completely. I usually use 'form a gasket' silicone on both sides of the thermostat rim to make sure. Hope it helps.

sounds like you may have a dead cylinder, check the spark plug wires and plugs. I would advise a full tune up given the cars age if you have not done so recently.
