Too much oil can cause damage as well as not enough. You may have caused a hydraulicing situation depending on the amount of oil you put in. When an engine hydraulics it can bend connecting rods, hurt bearings, break crankshafts. Etc. I would have a shop look at it to see what has been damaged and the best route for you to take to repair it
