You say this started after changing the oil, you didn't put too much oil in did you?

Check the sending unit
Most of the time when they go bad the pin the gauge
Its on the side of the motor by the distributor

The sending unit is on the passenger side of the engine. Next to the distributor. It should look like a 1" round cylinder with one wire going to it. WHen you remove it leave the 90* bend piece in the block.

Holds around 5 quarts, but too much won't change pressure
