Both symptoms can be caused by a bubble in the coolant. There is a bleed nipple on the upper radiator hose housing at the engine. Open it half a turn with a 12 mm socket when the engine is cool and close it when a steady stream of coolant comes out. Top up the radiator after bleeding. This has to be done every time the coolant is drained and refileld. A bubble will drive the fast idle thermo valve nuts, causing the idle hunting, and can cause the coolant not to circulate at idle, causing overheating.
