Question about High Oil temp?

New to the forum and relatively new to diesels. I have a 2004 F350 DRW with the 6.0 PSD 66,000 miles. All my temps except my oil temp are normal. I was driving down the highway doing about 70mph when my IQ beeps and tells me my Oil temp hit 240*. I checked all my other temps an they were normal so i backed off and the oil temp started dropping. By the time i got where i was going it was down to 230*. Does anyone know what the problem would be here? Oil cooler going bad? Coolant level is fine and there is no signs of puking or any other problems. there is just a very high oil temp. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also just did an oil and filter change and installed a sinister egr delete.

If by coolant temp you mean eng temp? Then the engine temp is only running around 186. Trans temp and egts are all normal too

an oem rebuild is what I would do, then add a coolant filtration system, that will help reduce the chances of the oil cooler failing again on the coolant side atleast.
