Flux Capacitor?

No idea. Might give some more info into your truck and where its located specifically just to help someone who might know out if they can't look at it and know immediately

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.

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.
