Sounds like you need a water pump (starting to fail), to test this when the car is cold take off the expansion tank cap and run the car, you should see a stream of coolant going back into the tank, if you accelerate the stream should go much faster (you will need a 2nd person to check this on acceleration), sounds like you probably won't have any flow at idle in your case which is no good. Hope this helps
