The noise u are hearing is the caused by a defective air temp control blend door actuator motor, all to common problem on Ford's, the part is fairly cheap but the dash must be removed to replace the part.

Rear Floor Vent heat only

Sounds like your heater coolant hose door flap is broken or loose. May want to check behind the heater controls, if your components are mechanically operated. If electronically, may need to perform more troubleshooting before replacing this component.

My 2001 Tahoe's heater does not blow warm or hot air in the front section of the vehicle. The floor and dash vent settings seem to work, but no warm air.. The vehicle's coolant temp is at the standard...

It is most likely the blend door actuator located in the dash. It controls the door to the heater box to let the air get warm. I would check it, most likely that is the issue since you have rear heat. Good luck.

Rear heat not blowing on 05 grand Caravan

If you have the heater control up front on the floor or on defrost you should check that the heat is not blowing from under the d/p seats. If you move the heater control to dash you should have it coming out the top vents.

You could be having a coolant problem and need to check that first, If coolant level is normal you might have a thermostat going out. Both will cause your heat not to warm up at normal speed. If you need any thing let me know.
