Water pump,

Also took it to Chrysler dealership and the water pump wasn't in the fix list. Could it need flushed out?

No flush,radiator new,the water pump will pump while idle,but when you increase the rpm,s the impellar is wore and want pump therefore leading to over heat while driving.Tell that chrysler Dealer to put pump on,will fix your issue.
