Need help ASAP

My 2000 Bonneville's oil pressure gauge is all the way up to 120. I had my oil changed around 3 weeks ago. Does anyone know why this would happen? Thanks in advance.

if something is unplugged yeah you can drive it. you may check to see if they put too much oil in the car. but there is a possablity that the senting unit for your oil oressure gauge is going bad too.

Not sure about Bonneville's, but I know that on a C5 Corvette, when the oil pressure sending unit goes bad, the oil pressure pegs high. I suspect that is your problem.
