Over-heating on Tristar 190

I think I have a bad raw water impeller..I over-heated to like 210-220 degrees last night for a long time before I could get it cooled down to like 150..I have a good stream of water coming from behind the impeller between the water pump and impeller??!! Any thoughts on the fix of the impeller or could it be the water pump or both?? Is the impeller an easy fix???!!

Impeller should be changed every season. impeller is easy - is water pump leaking at all? Have you inspected the impeller?

Do you have a water leak from the raw water pump? Pictures are very helpful here.

x2 for pictures. The impeller is inside the water pump. Do you mean the gasket is leaking? My best guess at the moment is that you might have leaking hose, but that's a pretty wild guess.

More specifically, what part of the pump is it leaking from the shaft, a hose, the cover plate, a crack in the housing...
The nature of the leak is the problem here. It's probably a pretty easy fix, but saying the water pump is leaking is like asking how much is a bottle of wine. To get an answer more specific information is required.
