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?

When this was working correctly, the pump would shut off when the trigger was released. Any suggestions?
