first with the car off and cool squeeze bottom radiator hose with your hand then do the top,this burps any air out of the system,of course have the cap open,if this doesnt solve the problem its your radiator cores are block as you speed up its trying to force coolant thru a blocked core and temperature rises,you can pull your raidiator and have it cored at a radiator shop,cheeper than buying new

Think I'd consider maybe replacing IAT sensor (intake air temperature sensor) , and cleaning the IAC motor before all that. The IAT basically tells the PCM what's going on temperature wise at the intake manifold, thus if it gives same reading when engine cold & needs more fuel, as it does once engine is warmed up, then you will experience the symptoms you are experiencing now. The IAC motor can be removed and spray cleaned with throttle body cleaner, (watch your eyes & hands) as well as spray into port you remove it from, as this may not be the cause, but may contribute, but if it were me, I'd change IAT sensor first & see what happens. If your mechanics want to change your fuel pump, tell them to test fuel pressure when first started cold and symptoms would be present, then test again after engine warmed up & running good. There should be a difference, as in lower pressure when cold. If once it's warmed up & you can accelerate well down the highway and experience no cutting out or bogging down as when cold, then I don't see why they are so sure it's fuel pump because it would do it then as well?

With the motor running and the engine hood UP, stand near the driver's front wheel and look down below where you would add the brake fluid. You will see a black rubber handle. That's the dipstick for the transmission fluid. Remove the dipstick WITH THE CAR RUNNING, wipe the stick and replace it. Pull it out again and see where the fluid is on the stick. If there is no fluid on the stick you need to add at least two quarts of DEXRON III transmission fluid. It takes a special funnel and goes into the transmission where you took the dipstick out. They can help you at the parts store if you need help getting the transmission fluid back to the correct level. i have run my transmission very low many times and adding fluid always puts it back in shape.
If the fluid is okay, turn off the key and look up near the battery. Just below the air filter and battery area near the top of the transmission is a shift lever than controls the different gears that puts the transmission into gear. There's a big cable attached to it. Have someone shift through the gears with the CAR OFF and make sure you can feel that lever moving and you can see the cable pulling the lever into logical click positions. If it is shifting into the positions and you have fluid in the transmission you will need a transmisison shop to look at the car because you may have a bad electronic device that controls the transmisison or some internal transmission failure.
