Ran Hot!! What now?

I have an 06 6.0 Powerstroke and I was driving home the other day when I noticed I had no boost. I checked all the other gauges and everything seemed to be fine. So I creeped the rest of the way home ate lunch and left again. Short ways down the road the boost started working and all other gauges were fine. I turned a corner and accelerated into traffic and the truck shut off completely. I pulled over and it appeared that the engine was extremely hot and the gauge was pegged out in the red. Up until the engine dying the gauge was reading normal. I took it to a general mechanic and he said I fried the engine!!! I let it cool down and I attempted to start the engine and after holding the starter for about ten seconds it fired off and ran normal. Wha precautions are checks do I need to make before I put my truck back on the road. Is the head gasket possibly busted??

Had it ever gotten hot before, and did it get hot after you turned it on again? My brothers 03 3.0 did something similar to this when the water pump went out.

Coolant level? Also, is there any white "smoke" coming out of the exhaust when you started it finally?
Was the fan clutch coming on?

RE....Ran Hot

There was no white smoke coming from the exhaust. This is the first time it has ever happened. What is the powerstroke warranty??

5 years or 100,000 miles whichever comes first , after 36,000 miles there is a 100.00 deductible

Does it smell burnt? If you pegged the temp gauge you are likey to score some kits. Any blow by? Water circulation? Where you under a load when this happened?

Look at the side of the block, does it look like it got hot? You will see the paint turned to a brownish pink right around the area of the head to block.
