Sounds like your drain tube or hole is clogged. You can find a product on Ebay that you spray up through the drain that will clean the coil and remove the mold and mildew. Just follow directions on can.

That's usually a sign of a bad heater core. You sure its its water and not coolant?

If not, could be a blocked discharge tube in the engine bay and its backing up the sysyem and leaking somewhere else.

I am sure it is no cooler since that only happens when i turn on the ac can it be related with the condenser cracked or something

Probably a blockage in the discharge tube then. You can try to unclog that. However, if you want to look, With the a/c on, Look under the dash and see if you can follow the water.

If it was coolant, it would most likely leak through the carpet from behind it.

Well depends on how well you can see, and where the leak is coming from. I wouldnt go crazy though. Try to see if unclogging would work first. You may not be able to see where its coming from, but its worth a try.

Can you tell me the name of the unclogging spray. I am new to all this mechanic stuff but First I am tired of paying a local shop to do easy and simple stuff second I enjoy mechanics and doing things by myself and most important I want to learn thanks

There are different brands, just go to ebay and search automotive coil cleaners. Get one of them that comes with a tube that will go up the drain tube. They will fill your A/C coil box up with foam that cleans the coil kills mold and mildew. As it does it delutes the crap that's blocking the drain. May have to repeat the steps on the can more than once.

If automotive coil cleaner search don't work try automotive evaporator coil cleaner,
