I can't help with the a/c problem. But if you try to remove the oil filler cap while it's running is it very tight and being held by a strong vacuum? If it is then your pcv system has failed and the vacuum limiting valve in the valve cover has failed. This sucks oils through the back pcv outlet into the intake at idle and high vacuum. Other than that it could be bad valve seals. My first guess I'd the valve cover though. Is it an S model?
