HI,
I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question.
The problem with sealers is that they can clog the radiator and heater core, as well as cause the thermostat to stick.
I would have the cooling system flushed to get rid of the sealer and then replace the thermostat. This should resolve the running hot.
For the leak, it needs to have a cooling system pressure test done to locate source of the leak.
