The engine starts to overheat whenever I am driving over 55 mph . Under that speed or at a light or in idle in the drive , there is no overheating . There must be some connection between the cooling and transmission but I don't know what it is.

no, it is a circulation problem, you probably hae a clogged radiator. now that you have driven it overheated, you may have compounded the problem by doing internal damage from the constant overheating.
I had the radiator replaced but now the mechanic is saying that he needs to do the water pump . But if the water pump wasn't working ... then wouldn't it overheat while idling . And I never actually ran it over the H temp mark . I would turn the heater on and pull over until I could get it home so it never completely overheated .
