When ac on at idle motor cuts off, oil presure reads at 20 instead of 30 when ac is not on and motor shakes quite a bit more. AC otherwise cools fine while driving.

I believe your air-conditioning pump is going out causing a excessive drag on the engine, it will still work, just overloading the engine.
