I guess the next step is to take it to a good mechanic-

sounds like either an air pocket causing the water pump to cavitate, or a bad water pump. Diagnosing a bad water pump can be problematic, since you can only accurately measure flow when hot. A blocked heater core could be a contributing factor as well.
