    why do you think it is overheating? If water is coming out of it then it is most likely not tightened down. It's where you connect a garden hose so you can flush it after a day out.

    because the heads seem hot ... and water box/ muffler are SUPER hot (when water drips off me onto the water box it sizzles) and im pretty sure that it not supposed to be the case...... O and water only comes out when i hold the valve down w/ my finger.. and its not a whole lot of water, more like an intermittent trickle....

    Hot means you couldnt hold you hand on it for any length of time. Do you have a working MFD to display overheat? It sounds like its probably fine if you ask me, but it looks really beat.
