450 serpentine belt came off and truck overheated

Interesting day. Was bringing our 06' F450 home from delivering Christmas Trres. No trailer. Noticed all of a sudden no power steering, brakes hard to push, and battery light on. I was really close to shop so limped it in. Right before I got back "check gauges" light came on and temperature gauge was pegged. Pulled in to nursery and serpentine belt was hanging out the bottom of engine and truck spewing coolant out of degas. Belt didn't brake, somehow came off pullies. Getting it towed on Monday. Hopefully didn't damage anything else. Truck is stock other than Bullet Proof EGR, 58v FICM, and Oil Cooler.

When mine got hot from coolant loss, I had to replace the water pump, it burned up the front pump seal. I'm not sure if it contributed to the failure of the Victor gaskets or not as it seems those are just a wast of time under the best circumstances.

I wish the trucks were the worst part. Oh well. Life goes on. I'm honestly not sure what happened. Not much a warning. Didn't hear a thing. Noticed no power brakes or steering, then got a check gauges message and at that point it was too late. I'm putting gauges on it so we can monitor temps. I would think one of the pullies seized or failed. It's getting towed in the morning. Hopefully no damage to head gaskets.

Then my truck threw the P0470 code. I just did the new S&B intake so bet I busted a sensor, and my 4x4 won't engage, defroster just comes on. Did hub seals last year as no vac leak was defected. What are you all using for aftermarket hubs? Are they still shift on the fly?

I have a feeling this week is gonna be expensive.

Hang in the Levi, this is only a test!

Hopefully your ebp sensor is just disconnected and not broken.

I'm still running stock auto hubs, but I'm sure theres got to be some aftermarket replacement that still allow engagement on the fly.

Just pullies and a new belt. Didn't pop the head gaskets. Still haven't got my truck back yet. Shop was backed up with the cold weather. This week didn't start off ant better. Someone broke into our business and trashed our office trailer and stole $4k worth of stuff. That said week couldn't have ended any better. My new niece was born last night. Really puts life's streases and obstacles into perspective. Everything else can be fixed. Have a great weekend.

I have seen so many people think they can just go a little farther when an idiot light comes on, well you can not, the light just proves why it is called an idiot light.
I have seen people go broke just because they never check the oil, coolant, or trans fluid. We had one guy loose $30,000 just because he did not want to check the oil, and when the light came on for oil he was pulling a hill and did not want to stop, he said the light came on before but nothing happened.
Sorry for you loss, but, you will be chasing problems for a long time.

And here I thought the manual referred to them as indicator/warning lamps and or gauges.

Levi maybe you can send some of that legal Colorado bud to John.

As far as hubs I think the 05 and up are not possible to swap out for aftermarket. I put warn in mine as the on the fly doesn't matter to me but I have 04 hubs. My stock ones had not been serviced by first owner and were frozen.

I swapped my pulleys out as a maintenance item.

Maintenance has never and never will be an issue. That said a scan gauge or CTS for that truck would be a good investment. I agree that many overlook basic maint and it's costs them big money. This wasn't the case. I wasn't pulling a load, completely empty. By the time I noticed the gauge or I guess in this case idiot light it was too late. Wish the damn thing made more noise like when the TBC fault goes off all the time. John your preaching to the wrong person about maintenance. Oil changes every 5k. Fuel every 10k. Tranny gets checked every oil change and oil levels are checked every fill up. I for one like the 6.0 and think you would be hard pressed to find two that have been maintained like mine. I'm sure there are others on this forum that take very good care of theirs too. My personal trucks mods were done for fun and preventative maint, not because I didn't watch my deltas and popped my gaskets. How many of you have lost a serpentine belt driving down the road? In all the 6.0 threads I've read I haven't seen one. Especially since my 06' with 60k had all fluids changed and belt replaces last year as preventative maint. weld I will add tensioners and pullies to the maint list. Anyway this idiot is off to work. Have to maintenence our loaders and tree spades.
