    Front is cooling okay...?

    I'll assume so.

    Rear engine coolant flow control solenoid valve has failed/open.

    Refrigerant flow through the evaporator expansion valve is CONSTANT (hissing) due to the nearby HOT heater core not allowing the evaporator vanes/fins to decline to the 34F temperatrue wherein the expansion valve will begin to block refrigerant flow.

    If i am correct you should have good rear cooling capability before the engine coolant rises to operational temperature.

    Oh, sorry, the front cooling capability may also be compromised once the engine coolant rises since the rear system will/might then be "stealing" all or most of the liquid refrigerant flow.
