That controls the fluid line to the heater core. When in A/C or Max A/C (not sure which, might be both) it shuts the flow of coolant off. Thus obtaining super cold A/C.

I unplug that thing everytime i get under the hood somehow.

Yup, it controls the valve for the heater coolant.

Got questions about your 6.0?

Just the one hose plugs in there. Right where it is.

anytime A/C is on that valve shuts with vacuum applied so hott coolant can't flow through your heater core. that way it won't fighty your a/c so you get superr cold a/c when charged properly lol.
