    Y'all seem to have covered most everything. Do you know if this compressor runs pretty cool to the touch? Does it have an internal relief valve? Check to see if it is dumping refrigerant into the dome of the compressor. It will be very hot if it is. It sounds like the compressor has seen better days.

    Check the lineset length and configuration. this seems like a symptom of the compressor losing the top bearing due to poor oil return. could be loooong lineset, or imporplery sized risers.
