Default oil gage problem....

hey ya'll. just changed my oil today. took it for a spin immediately after to get some sammy adams oktoberfest (yum) and some food for the dog. as i was pulling away i noticed my gage was past the full mark. i know it's not overfilled and it worked properly before the oil change. what do you kind folks think may be the problem?
thanks for yer help!

Check the oil pressure sending unit, you may have broken it when taking the oil filter off, it happens.

Also, the guage is pressure and not amount of oil.

i just replaced mine. There are 2 kinds, one for a light and one for the gauge. the gauge one that i needed was all of $15 and took 5 min to swap in and works like a champ so dont feel to bad about it. Use some Teflon tape on the threads..

Pretty sure this is the one.
