Most likely AC drain pluged. When running AC see if water drips out onto ground. It should! If not then check the drain,see mechanic.

Did you check to see if water drips from car when running ac?

yes..water is dripping under the car toward the back of engine compartment.

Ok that rules out the ac drain. Going to be hard to make another gess. Windshield leak? The cowl drain is under the COWL the plastic piece at the bottom of windshield where the wipers come out. Do you park near say pine trees or the like that may shed and stop up drain? May take flashlight and look through cowl webbing to see.GOOD LUCK.
