Having problems with your Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer ?

I temporarily misplaced (not lost for good) the owners manual for my honda pressure washer : engine and pump. I do not want to run my machine again until I verify the pump oil content/level. On the pump itself, at the top, there is a black, unscrewable oil cap, with blue-ish oil in it, BUT NO DIP STICK! How do I check the level? What kind of oil, specs etc? Thanks!

I bought a troybuilt pressure washer used and i changed the motor oil and ran it maybe 5 minutes. later i checked the oil level again and it shot out the cap and i noticed the pump oil level is also almost to the top of sight glass. Does anyone know whats wrong?

I have two questions and would greatly appreciate some help: - What oil to use in the pressure pump of a Ryobi Pressure Washer RY80030? - How much to put in? The pump model is MTP092150 from FAIP.
