This would depend on how hot your engine was when shut down and how low your coolant level was, if you had your heater turned on at the time it would have helped to keep the temperature down. Hopefully the heads did not warp so you will not need to replace them. I Wish You The Best Of Luck on this

2008 f350 6.4 liter wrench light on reduced engine power on no codes water pump and housing replaced thermostats replaced coolant flushed twice oil coolers free flowing lights are still on any sugesti

Have the codes read. I haven't worked on any thing to date that reduce power because of the coolant system or the oil. I have done some that will kill the engine because of both, but not reduced power. This could be from an engine hard part, sensor or wiring. Most times it's caused from a transmission problem.

Just had a/c recharged and in one day it is hot air again

That's why you do a leak test, o-rings and leaks at compressor do happin,
I hope you added freon dye, or it's going to cost you freon again, when vaccuming the system for 30 min. and static pressure for 15 min.. the static is when you turn the vac. pump off for 15 min. and there is no loss of vacumn, you have to have A/C gauges, with front and rear A/C takes 46 oz freon and 13 oz of pag 46 oil, only front A/C 34 oz freon and 9 oz pag 46 oil,

Will start in the am, after driving 15-20 miles, turn it off for a short time (15 min), will not crank. happens during the summer time. after letting sit for about an hour, it will then start.

there would be salt formation in the radiator which would turn the engine off and also may be the spark plug would be weak so try to clean the radiator and change the spark plug also.
