Hey everyone, last night the check gauge light came on as the truck started to overheat.  I shut it down to let it cool off and to troubleshoot the problem then it wouldn't start back up.  Looking for some direction and advise.  Thanks

with the change in body styles, the computers on the trucks became much smarter, pretty much your truck was protecting its self from damage by not letting you start it back up. check your thermostat, or your heater core.
