1995 Chevy Suburban Leaking Water - Thermostat not moving?

I don't know what is leaking from my engine - it leaks when it's running - and it leaks for a small bit when it's stopped (makes a puddle about the size of a dessert plate). I stuck my hand in it - seems like it's water - it doesn't smell. My anti-freeze is orange - not sure if it smells like the green stuff did. Started over the weekend - filled up with gas, check engine light came one after 20 minutes of driving, right after I turned on the fan to defrost the front windows. Turn around and went home. Been driving it ever since - no check engine light - but funny smell (or maybe my imagination?) And I see the water dripping after I stop it (and no, I didn't have the AC on). Tried running it in neutral with the parking brake on and the AC on, and still drips - but quicker drips. Still seems like water. Coolant Overflow is still at the cold level. It's driving rough though - like it's not getting enough gas - thought maybe I got a bad tank of gas, but why would it be dripping water (right behind the passenger front tire). Thanks.
Do you
have the same problem?

The only thing that will produce water (not coolant) is the AC. Does the liquid evaporate after it sits?

As far as the engine, if the check engine light had come on for you, chances are there is a code stored in the computer. IF you take it to a nationally recognized parts store, they will scan it for you. Most will do it for free, so there is no money out of pocket. Have that done so I can better assist you with identifying that problem.

Let me know.
