Sounds like you have a bad or clogged heater core solenoid valve, The soleniod is behind the right kick panel of the drivers foot well. At full cold setting, the solenoid gets energized and shuts off the cooland flow. When it gets partly clogged it lets slow moving coolant to pass (idle) and plugs up when fast moving coolant tries to enter (driving). Try a heavy duty coolant flush and adjust the temp dial from max cool to max heat while flushing the system.
