Yes, starred chapters don't set the chaptermark which you use normally to
get the chapter title in the header.
You can get it by following the \chapter*{title} with:
\chaptermark{title} or defining a macro which does both.

For using the parts, you can do the following:
\let\Oldpart\part
\newcommand{\parttitle}{}

and then use \parttitle in the header.

Another alternative is to use the titlesec package which provides commands
like \partmark that you can use.
