Make sure you are also running NON detergent oil in the pump. Most all oil style pumps are splash lubricated. There is often a extension on the bottom of the connecting rod that literally splashes the oil around to lubricate the pump. Regular automotive engine oil can foam up and it will end up going into the tank and also can blow out the breather, Also be careful not to over fill the pump.

If you are getting oil from the air pump in your hoses and tools your problem is in the cylinder/piston area. The piston on air pumps is very much like a car piston, depending on what model you have it has compression rings and oil scraper rings. If any of these are damaged or if your cylinder(s) is badly scored oil will get by the piston and be forced out with the compressed air to your tools. The only repair is to take the head and valve plate off and find out what parts you need to replace. If the cylinders are lightly scored they can be honed out but you can't machine them out as Campbell Hausfeld doesn't make oversized rings or pistons.

How do I change the gun filter on Campbell hausfeld airless sprayer?

Assuming it is detached from hose, I would first unscrew the skinny end of the filter housing that goes into the gun at the gun handle. That's cause it looks fragile and allows easier access to the wrench positions where you break down the hex fitting from the filter housing. After unscrewing the hex fitting the filter cartridge should pull out easily for cleaning or replacement.
