Question about Mitsubishi 3000GT
The drive belt slipping could be contributing, but it still sounds like the water pump. I would get it fixed before you do some real damage to the engine. Sorry.

To solve the problem you have the things to do in this order;
) When the engine is cold top off the radiator with fluid. (When the pump was replaced the fluid should have been also)
) Make sure the radiator fluid has anti-freeze in it. This is also anti boil also !
) Add fluid to the overflow reservoir.
) Make sure the drive belt was replaced on the water pump.
) With the engine running, you can add fluid to the radiator for the first minute or so. You want to get air pockets out.
) Replace radiator cap.
) Let car warm up. When it's hot you should get the radiator fan coming on.
) When it get hotter the air-conditioning fan may come on.
) If the fan does not come on, the heat sensor is probably bad.
) If all fans come on, and it overheats, you may have a bad thermostat. Trace the upper radiator hose to where it connects to the engine. That's where it located.
Do not operate the engine when it overheats, You will damage the head gaskets and cause radiator fluid to leak into the cylinders.
If you smell radiator fluid in the exhaust fumes, it may already be leaking.

Without having too many details, I would say check the thermostat. I had the same problem in my Eclipse. I took the thermostat out and haven't had any problems since.
If you don't change your radiator fluid often, it causes the thermostat to gum up and stick. If it sticks in the closed position then no radiator fluid runs into the engine and then the engine overheats.

If your coolant light turn on sometimes, and you can check that your coolant level is low, definitly you have a leak.
I suggest check this artricle about how to detecting coolant leak
Hope this help (remember rated and comment this).
