Our ac was leaking water in the rear 'trunk' area when it was running last summer and now we have 'recharged' it 3 times and it is continually not working after a week. What should we be looking for?

Look for a leak. Remove all ref, and vacuum test.

The water is a drain hose issue.

Water at the back seat

Water leaks can be very evasive. They can originate in one end of the vehicle and fill the floor board in the other end of the vehicle, depending on where the water is getting in at. Obviously, the first things to check would be the weatherstripping around the rear doors and the back glass. Also, check inside the trunk to see if there is any water. I have seen trunk lid leaks that can run forward into the rear seat area. If none of this works, you may have to remove your interrior panels and run water over the car to locate the leak.

My AC worked great until last year and then after a power steering hose leak was discovered, the ac until stopped blowing cold air. I took it and paid 75.00 to have it recharged with coolant and it worked...

My air conditioner started blowing hot air last summer. I put coolant in it and didn't run it until the beginning of summer this year (2011). All of a sudden it started working again. Sometimes it blows hot but if I keep it running full blast the coolness comes back. I don't know why this happened.

Water leaks can be really evasive, It could be coming from the rear glass where it seals against the body or it could be coming from the seams where the quarter panels and roof panels meet. (at the lower corners of the back glass/trunk lid area.) The best way to find these things are to water-test the vehicle. You can look for water entering the trunk area if you can find someone you trust to run water over the trunk and back glass area while you are inside the trunk with a flashlight. If this does not yield any answers, it may be necessary to remove the rear seat and interrior panels and headliner to look for water running into the cabin area. If you see any water, follow it uphill to locate the point of entry. I have even seen windshield area roof leaks fill the rear floor pans of a car that was parked nose-up on a hill.

A/c service/replacement. Every summer I need to

If the system requires a recharge every summer there is most definately a leak. If the leak is small enough to last the whole summer then it may be worth it to just continue recharging it every year. Some a/c repairs can be very expensive. For example the evaporator core is behind the dash board on most vehicles. If this were to leak, like it does on many jeep products, it could cost $1000 - $1500 to properly repair. Now if the leak was small enough that it lasted for the season. It would take about 10-15 years for it to be more economical to repair the leak then it would to just recharge the system every year. You need to figure out where the leak is to determine what you should do.

Pontiac Bonneville with water leaking into trunk

same problem happened to my 2005 bonneville. inside the trunk and behind the carpet covering the wheel wells there are two water drain tubes. these tubes run down the inside of the "c" pillar and drain the water from the sunroof. they make a 90 degree bend at the bottom back of the wheel well(inside the trunk) and fit inside a round rubber tube/grommet at both of the rear wheel wells that lets the water drain outside.either the plastic 90 degree tube has come out of the rubber tube/grommet or the drain tube could be plugged up with debris. also make sure the two round rubber tube/grommets are installed correctly and seal the hole going through the trunk to the outside of each wheel well. this is of course only for those bonnevilles that have a factory sun/moon roof.

Sounds like you lost your refrigerant in the system, couple options here, 1. Take the chance its a very slow leak and just recharge it or have it recharged, sometimes vehicles will last all summer or even more, but keep in mind, if large leak you just wasted some money charging the system. 2. If it was mine, most repair shops can send a dye through the system and pinpoint where losing freon. Losing freon is the most common A/C failure and keep in mind can get costly if not fixed right.
3. Last but not least is the compressor, not as common of a problem as losing freon but still could be the problem, this is where taking it in somewhere that deals with air conditioning on a regular basis could troubleshoot this easily, but hopefully the compressor is not at fault as they usually run $200 or more.
