The oil pressure gauge on my 2000 Ford Ranger pegs out as soon as it starts, I figured the pressure sensor went out si bought a new one at auto zone. My son and I finally got it changed and the gauge still pegs immediately on start up. What is my next step?

Do you

Check the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge could be excessive pressure due to oil pump pressure relief valve not opening
