Question water temp gage pegged

I have a 03 6.0 f250 crew 4X4. It has 125k miles on it. I was driving home and all of a sudden my Water temp gage pegged hot and the check engine light came on. The tow/haul light was flashing as well. Let the truck sit 30 min gauge read normal crank up and tried to make it home but within 25 yards the Water temp gage pegged hot, the check engine light came on and the tow/haul light started flashing.
I had the truck towed to a mechanics shop and they cannot find anything apparently no codes were set and the truck is running fine. I am somewhat mechanically inclined. I chg my oil and fuel filters and so forth, but am not a master mechanic. Any help or advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

mike

RE:

No it did not shift funny. Yea I thought when you got a check engine that meant a code was present. It's a local mechanic, came highly recommended he's suppose to be pretty good. Said he has the latest and greatest snap on computer diag equiptment but he said there were no codes present. I really believe it's something electrical.
