I'm sorry, the A/C is the auto temperature control type. You set the temp you want and the unit adjusts. You can also take it out of auto mode and control the fan speed and temp manually. By the way, the same blowing consistency problem occurs in either auto or manual mode. Thanks.

Sounds like some got in the engine. Pull all the plugs and crank it over to see if any more water comes out. That can do serious damage to the internals in an engine (bend rods, crack crankshafts).
