With a change of filter and sitting overnight, it takes a couple of seconds to pump oil through the new filter. Shouldn't happen again until the next change.

I'd start by changing out the filter again. Maybe you got one with a bad anti-drain back valve?

Could be a bad oil pressure sensor, oil filter, etc. I'd start the cheapest route first, which is the filter. Oh, and make sure you poured the proper amount of oil in.

Did you check the oil level via the dip stick, does that look normal?
Yes i did, when the engine was cold, oil level on dip stick was a little bit over max line. which is odd because i put in only 5.6 liters of oil ??

Thank you for the tip, i will replace filter again all though its OEM AcDelco, if not ill replace sensor. First i thought it was because of oil brand replacement --> castrol to mobil 1. i just hope that its not camshaft as i read on some other forums :(
