The problem maybe the same I am having. I have condensation forming under the drain pan do to the temp. difference from the cold water on top and the warmer air below the pan. To correct this I installed fiberglass insulation under the entire pan to keep the temp. Constant. This will prevent warm air contacting the bottom of the pan causing it to sweat.

I suppose that the water is coming from the unit where the blower motor is. Condensation is created by the evaporator coil while its running and is suppose to drain into a pan under it and through a pipe to the outside. This pipe could be stopped up. The easiest way to fix that is to blow air through the pipe from the outside. It probably comes out close to the outside unit. It could be that your inside filter is dirty causing reduced air flow and making the evaporator freeze too. Change the filter. That may help. There are other steps that you could take if these don't help. Contact me by email if you need to. Cant run over there because I'm in Missouri but may be able to help in a chat room.

I have water leaking in my car every time i turn on my ac. I need to fix it before it gets much worse, and living here in florida i have to run my ac all the time.

My recollection, 01 LW, is there is a drain hole in the engine compartment, bottom of the firewall, just forward of the passenger's feet. Condensation should be dripping out of that. Take it to a shop, have it put on a lift and run a big pipe cleaner in and out of there, something is blocking it. these cars are also prone to heater core leaks, are you sure it is water and not antifreeze?

No heat, got great a/c....

W1 and W2 are the differences from the single stage to the two stage. Im thinking its your thermostat is not programed for 1 heat / 1 cool. You probably had 2 heat / 1 cool before.

I would like to know the specifications of my Goodman model CPKE42-18 AC/Heat pump system. BTUs heating and cooling? Thank You,

Many HVAC people talk in tonnage. One ton is equal to 12,000 Btus. Therefore your model specifies your cooling tonnage at 3 and 1\2 tons. Your heating would be determined by how many if any supllimentary heat strips are added. If you live in Anahiem or Miami that's not really important. But if you live anywhere that gets down into the 40's at night you'll want strips. Cooling wise depending on where you live and what your insulation is like, I'd say your unit is good for 1100-1300 Sq feet of living space.

Leaking water

how long have you had the unit,, depending on where you live you might be using your ac in your house and if the installer didn't install the condensate catcher on the flu pipe then you wil have water runing out of the unit, if it is happening all the time then you would need to have a service tech come out that would meen something like the tank or a water line is broken,, but since you said it's coming from the side I would have to say it is condensation
