SOURCE: Mitsubishi Challenger Early Radiator Cap

no, usually when a radiator cap fails there is another problem. either you have a blown head gasket that is allowing compression air gases to move into your cooling system or you have a coolant temperature sending unit that is failing in service and not letting your cooling fan kick on at the appropriate time to cool your engine down.which will prematurely destroy the rubber gasket on the bottom side of your radiator cap.

Agree with jason. for additional, is the radiator shroud (the plastic connected to the radiator focusing the fan) still installed? if not that may also be the cause.
If your vehicle radiator fan is hydraulics, make sure its hard enough to respond synchronously with the rpm of the engine, if it is loose add silicon oil, available in most autosupplies.
make sure ur radiator water galleries are clean, if not have the radiator overhauled, most of the passages must be clogged with dirt or rusts.

"It takes about 4.75 litres with new filter, put 4.25 in first let it run for a few minutes then top up this allows for the filter to fill. If you still have your owners manual in glove box the back of it tells you the amount of oil and all other fluid amounts."

Mitsubishi challenger

If it shudders check your motor mounts as they may be soft or broken. If it slips it may be because the pressure plate is not fully engaging. If it has a clutch cable adjust it. If it has a hyd system try adjusting the master cylinder rod to the pedal if it is adjustable. Also possible you put in the incorrect parts. Did you carefully compare old and new parts?

First check that the temperature gauge sender unit is working correctly it maybe faulty.
Check that the transmission is not causing to much heat going through the cooler from the load which runs through the radiator if it is automatic.
Ensure that the engine has had a proper flush when all the new parts were fitted. The engine block may have blocked galleries.
Hope this helps you out, let me know what you find.
