When you filled the coolant did you open the bleeder screw on themostat housing? The whole system should hold about 12.3 quarts.

sounds like the water pump might be starting to go out and when you accelerate the water pump speeds up causing the coolant to cool down the motor. you could look into that or take a look at the motor when its just sitting and see if the coolant fans kick or not.
