    How high was the oil temp?

    What units is the "5" above?

    Are there external leaks or smoke?

    Sorry I'm misunderstanding.

    5 what? PSI?

    280 what? Degrees Fahrenheit?

    280'F is nearly 140C. I'd not expect to see that except under severe prolonged high rpm use on a track.

    Suspect significant friction internally, particularly if your oil pressure is low: bearings come to mind. Exclude the worst by starting with a compression test but I'd fear a big end issue etc.
