This is completely normal for a window a/c unit. The purpose of the leaking is to leach the humidity from you home in the summer. When the house is hotter the air is inherently more humid. As warm air is passed over the condensors in the unit it turns into water and should drip out of the back of any air conditioner unit. It essentially turns into distilled water. Not a problem and don't worry! Enjoy the air!

92 cad deville leaking water by the back of lower control arm

Depends on which side of the car. Is it clean water or does it look like it's from the cooling system (check the radiator/overflow tank to see if level is dropping)? If the former, probably just condensation from the AC evaporator (normal); if the latter, check for a cooling system leak above that area.

Why is water leaking from a RuuD furnace

Water can leak from any furnace for a couple of different reasons.
If it is in AC mode, the AC evaporator could be freezing due to lack of refrigerant or airflow (check your furnace filter). Or the AC drain could be clogged normally a hose or PVC pipe coming from the evaporator.
If it is in heating mode could be high efficiency furnace not draining properly or leaking humidifier.

I have water leaking from front right of my car, it only happens when I turn the ac on! I'm guessing it is a leak but is that going to be a big cost fix?

Water is NORMAL byproduct of the AC process, and is okay. Less humidity is more comfortable than just COLD.

This condition is normal and required.

I have a leak in the back of the engine. looks like a pipe coming from the firewall on the passenger side, about halfway down into the engine. is this a freeze plug or a heating issue?

That sounds just like the condensation drain tube for the AC system, and if it is cool clear water coming out of it when the AC is operating instead of hot coolant, then it would be a normal condition and it is doing exactly what it is designed to do.

Also, if it was a coolant leak you would be low on coolant, and the engine would be getting hot.

Camry ac not cooling

you will need the AC serviced with new gas\dryer and leak test, assuming you can hear the AC compressor turning on and off.
Not sure where you are, but in australia you must be licenced to work on AC, with big fines for releasing AC gas to the atmosphere.

The warm air comes from the engine heat not the AC so the warm being normal just means the fan works

Water leaking from under the manifold (not your normal AC drip), temp gauges now reading to the far right. I dont see smoke yet. When I turn the AC off, temp goes back to normal readings. Am I overheating,...

is there a coolant leak?? or is it water.... BIG DIFF. if its COOLANT, get it fixed ASAP. Is the A/C cooling OK?????I dont know what kind of A/C problem could make it hot. Is the radiator fan working with the a/c on??? ck that first.

The water that drains from the airconditioner to outsied is clogged up and not draining how can i unclogg it myself?

I can tell you a few stories of my own - I've had this problem myself and water will eventually build up and leak inside your house - you don't want it to leak on your electrical outlet ! I do not know how long you had this unit or how old is it, but these things can happen over time due to dirt, dust or other foreign objects or rust. Some AC units have fan spinning and picking up the water and spraying it on evaporators, most of it should be evaporated - only excess humidity will cause dripping - on older models water should drip outside through an opening or two at the back of the AC unit.

Make sure your AC is not level, and is tilted about 20 degrees outside, allowing the water to flow outside the AC unit.

You will need to find a way to access your AC unit from outside, locate the areas where the water drips normally, you should see openings, using an object (paper clip, pipe cleaner, etc.) try to insert it in the holes back and forth until you dislodge whatever is blocking the hole - be careful not to damage the very deliate fins at the back of your AC.

if still no water drips then take a ladder and climb up and you shuold be able to see from the inside there should be a slope or container where water accumulates before dripping out, is there ANY water there ? If you mostly see water farther away then your AC is probably not tilted enough to allow water to flow out.

If there is neither any water towards the outer edge where it drips, nor inside, farther away nor dripping inside your home, then it is probably being all evaporated or your humidity level is under control. The more your air has moisture the more water will be produced inside your AC, any excess moisture will accumulate inside your AC - if your AC manages to evaporate all of it, and no leaks inside, good for you, I wouldn't touch it.

Another tip - when you shut down your AC, do you hear swishing and unusual sounds of water ? that could mean accumulated water not being evacuated - Although it IS normal for some stagnant water to remain in your AC - do not worry about that, as long as it doesn't leak inside.

Leak in the front/middle of the undercarriage

If the leak is under the passenger side, about midway back (right under the firewal, to be exact), there is a line that does indeed drain water. This is the condensate drain for the air conditioner. As the AC operates, it removes humidity from the cabin area. This humidity condenses into water, and collects at the bottom of the heater/AC box, and then is drained out onto the street, via a rubber tube, thru the firewall. This is a normal condition, much like the AC unit in your home, it too has a condensate drain line. Nothing to worry about.
NOTE: If you run the AC with the "FRESH mode" active, as opposed to the "RECIRC" mode, you will get MORE water draining out under the car, as the AC is working against fresh air entering the cabin/more humidity... Hope this helps. Please feel free to comment back if you have further questions, and Thanks for choosing FixYa.
