To empty the oil you tip it over on it's side. The type of oil to use is car oil and depends on the temperature where you live.

I believe the pump needs oil added, however, I can't seem to firgure it out (how to add oil to the pump). I did notice that previously, I used to see drops of oil coming from under the pump. I I have a bad seal, can I add oil and test the pressure before I change the seal? Please advise.
