Filling the HPOP? Overfill?

My wife, bless her, changed the oil herself in her truck. However she didnt fill the filter before replacing it. It started then lost power and died and wont restart. I am pretty sure the HPOP got drained and is now empty. I know the level needs to be 1/2 inch or so from the top but curious if it matters when filling if it gets totally filled to the brim. Thanks

You actually can't overfill the reservoir, it has a hole at the top that spills the excess supplied by the LPOP back into the engine.

I have never done this on my PS, or any other vehicle I've changed oil in. Never heard of it causing a problem either

It's just good practice really. On a filter that holds a few quarts of oil it could mean a few less seconds your engine has no oil pressure.

yeah thats why at times if you drain your oil real good and dont prime the filter, you hear a cool knock for a few seconds cause of that much oil has to be pumped through the filter and back to the engine. i never really do it to much but have been lately, just to fill it up half way so its not to much of a pain to spin on there.

If she already has 15 quarts in the engine, won't adding oil to the HPOP result in having it then be overfilled?
