If the mech raised the engine up at the front to get access to the pump then that may have affected the trans linkage, if it didn't have the problem before the water pump was replaced then it is likely something done the repair caused the issue with the trans shift linkage

Oil pump quits when transmission kicks down or heavy acceleration

I have only seen this happen once in my entire it happens it was to one of my own cars (also a chrysler product) Normally if asked I'd say that oil pumps don't fail. BUT, it is possible that the drive gear on the pump has become just loose enough on the shaft that when pumping hard, it will spin slower and result in the conditions you mentioned. To test it you need to actually take the pump apart and put the shaft in a vise and try to turn the gear with a pair of waterpump pliers
Bottom line is: change the pump.
