Ford gauges suck, period. Invest in either a cheapo water temp or a good quality water temp gauge. You CAN NOT trust the ford gauges.
Stuck close? Did you drive the truck very far? It could have overheated (in the sense that the water in the block got super hot and the thermostat never opened to cool it down). Could have done the headgaskets or heads in. I would run it for a while and check your coolant levels to see if they go down any.
Is it a white smoke that disappears fast, like a cold gasser, or does it linger in the air and stink?
