Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Outlander
It could be possible, but not likely. If the water pump was bad, your engine wouldn't have anyway to cool down and would over heat. Sounds like you just need to replace the radiator.

watch for leaks and follow them after you drive i would geuss checking your thermostate housing both parts, the hoses that go to the heater core by the throttle body and the hose that goes to the throttle body, im guessing this is the turbo, if it is a non turbo it would be a hoses the waterpump or the oring that goes into the waterpipe on the front of the block, just get in there and take a good luck and remember the rules of gravity =) good luck man and if you need any parts for it let me know we got alot of these parts cars out in our yard

You may need to ask AAA to put a radiator pressure tester on the resevoir bottle and pump it up to operating pressure(Pressure cap rating) and see if it over pressurises while it is running at operating temp,rev engine up and down and watch what the testers pressure readings do,it should move up and down in sync with the water pump.If the pressure keeps building i would have to believe that combustion chamber gases are over pressurising your cooling system.Also test the pressure cap is functioning within factory specs.

SOURCE: overheating problem
I would go with slowcalafl. It is either air, or a cracked head bad head gasket. Remove the radiator cap when cool. Start up the car and watch for bubble emerging from the coolant. If it continues to bubble, you have a bad head or head gasket. If not, look for improper timing as another possibility.
