You should not be able at all to be able to turn the impellers on the water pump. this is a common problem to FYI,,, replace the pump and all your troubles will be gone,,,, Another thing they do make a better pump its cast iron inpeller and most parts stores dont know this so you might just get a plastic impeller pump again unless your parts store searches for what im saying but in any case you need to just replace it cause it should not turn on the shaft at all its stationary to the shaft
