Is the catch jug over full? Check the level in it when it is cold, should have a cold full mark on it. As far as AC it might have frozen up. Is it working now? Is it working properly?

Test/replace radiator cap. AC may have frozen up due to atmospheric conditions ( extremly high humidity cool temps). If it stops working again I would have the system checked to be sure it is charged properly. Sometimes an under charged system will freeze up
