I borrowed my nieghbors power washer. It worked the first day all day. In the morning i filled the gas with a fuel stabiler, and 30 oil. I may have over filled it. Upon turning it on the oil started leaking from the air filetr compartment. It starts, but then smokes starts to fume and all the oil leaks. Did I break it or is it a easy fix. I cleaned the filter housing. Also the filter was soaked with oil. should i get a new filter and install it or what is the solution. need help.
