I get the feeling this is the first time you've used the heater? Its probably accumulated dust. As long as you don't get a burning smell or smell exhaust fumes you should be ok after a few hours use.

With the unit on heat the front vents blow heat but the rear vents only blow cold air

are you talking about the overhead vents? They only recirculate air without the a/c on.

Front vents will not work

If they are stuck on defrost,then the problem is a little vaccum line that comes through the firewall as all the climate controls are vaccum controlled,so look for a small green or black plastic line unhooked.

you have a loss of vacuum. There is a small diameter black plastic tube from the engine compartment that feeds the climate controls. Check at back of control head, or there is a plastic connector under dash were other color tubes join to operate the other actuators of the system the black tube must have vacuum when engine is running. check under hood the black tube is spliced. separate the tube and check for vacuum The tube enters the firewall near the heater hoses.

Radiator drain plug

Just recently found this on my MPV. get on your back and slide just under the front of the van. just behind the bumper you'll see several holes about 3/4" to 1" diameter. there is one located more toward the driver side. there is a large black Phillips head screw. this should be the drain for the coolant/antifreeze. if you look inside under the hood, or through some of the other holes, you should be able to see where this connects to the radiator. hope that helps.
