High Oil Temperture Reading.

Im new too the Pokerstroke Diesel Forum. I have a 2005 F350 with a cold air intake, Banks ottomind 6, and a 4" exhaust form the turbo back. I was coming home from work today and my PDA started buzzing saying i had a High oil Temp reading. ( 236 was the reading ). Kinda scares me a bit but does anyone have any idea what the problem is. The truck only has 71000 miles on it. Any Help for me PLEASE???? Thanks

P.S. Love my POWERSTROKE!!!!

Yeah as a matter of fact it has. I could hear a really faint whisle coming from under the under while driving between 45-60m mph. I put a new coolant cap on and that seemed to fix the problem. But the coolant level is still a bit low.

The coolant stops up the oil cooler in the small holes so the oil doesn't get cooled down and the bad or going bad oil cooler makes your egr crack from high temps and loose coolant into motor.
