The impact might have dislodged the pipe a bit, thereby causing it to suck some air. The strainer, which is connected to the pipe, is fastened to the oil pan with two screws so the impact probably moved the pipe a bit. Combine that with an old, possibly hardened o-ring (where the pipe connects) and you're looking at possible aeration of the oil. This could be your problem.
