Well, I can't comment. Be sure the temps are set low enough for the compressor to get a good workout. Maybe go for a drive and then check the driveway back home. I have 6 cylinder and leave a trail of water drops in this humidity. :o

Check your boxes (Battery etc) under the front seats. Driver side and passenger side, it could be draining into there.. but yea you probably should see some water under the car, I know I do. 5.7 here.

There is definitely water created from the ac system and it's got to go somewhere. I think there were a few people who had a water sound coming from somewhere and found a rubber plug that should have been removed at some point under the front seats. One thread actually had pictures showing which one needed to be pulled if you find any water under your seats.

The low side is suppose to get a good sweat anytime the AC is running.

Also, the water you see is condensation. Maybe the drain tube is clogged. Either way, condensation is suppose be seen under the auto when it's on.

That was my thought as well I find strange that I see no drips at all does anyone know where its suppose to drain so I can go from there to locate a clog drain or plug. I made a 60 min trip yesterday ac running the whole time. Not a drip of water under the vehicle I have no idea where it can be going

Seeing similar behavior...AC seems to be working but we used to see a big puddle underneath the driver's side door in the garage. I have noticed in the past few days that the AC doesn't feel frigid like it used to.

Opened up the compartments under the seats and they were dry. We do still have the sloshing but I think that's the gas tank (know about the TSB and still on the fence about getting that replaced).

I just started the Jeep in the driveway and ran the AC for a bit...and saw a small puddle so I think it's OK.

Re: ac cold no water
 
Which side does the ac drain?

Not sure but I usually see a puddle under the driver's side.
