Erratic Idle, no heat in vent...

Over the last few weeks after 5 minutes of startup, my windshield defrost would all of a sudden start spewing a more humid air and actually frost up the windshield (it is stupid cold here in Calgary). After another few minutes it would blow normal and defrost the window. Sometimes when idling for a long time there would be a few drops of oil or coolant...never much.

A few days ago it stalled when idling. Now after a few minutes the idle goes erratic and the only time it blows heat its when the rpms are up...and it's only luke warm at that.

I have read 100's of posts and yes, I have read white_legend_93's sig several times...I hope I don't have a BHG (does not blow smoke)! I just didn't read about anyone else getting the humid air at first...

Here is what I have done:
-checked coolant level...clean and full in rad and at MIN on reservoir.
-Tried bleeding line...not sure if I did it right (screw after top hose?)
-tried running with rad cap off (neighbor said it would get rid of air pockets)-this only slowly created a puddle.

Here is what I think it may be from other posts:
-Rad Cap causing air in system?
-heater core?

I love reading through the posts on these forums and I'm sorry if I am posting this in the wrong spot or if I have missed another post outlining this exact issue.

Thanks to anyone with insight on what this may be...
