all 4 stroke engines have oil, and 2 stroke can have a oil mixer reservoir to mix with engine gas or to lube the chains , gears, pumps.
If yours is 4 stroke as likely then the oil may be leaking at the seals to the main. (bad news)
Pressure wash it (lol) and locate the leak,
to speed up the leak you can pump some compressed air into the engine (be creative)

It seems that your pump needs a good service. The sucktion and delivery valves got faulty. The high pressure seals and the low pressure seals must be renewed. The pistons must be checked for corrosion and cracks. Also the pistons or one of the pistons got stuck due to oncorrect lubrication. The swash plate that drives the pistons could have got loose. So the motor turns and the pump stays dead. So a good examination and service must be done to the pump. To renew all the parts I have mentioned, you must buy a PUMP KIT for you model. The pistons are not included in the pump kit....but hopefuly the pistons are still good. Also the oil inside the pump must be renewed.

SOURCE: pressure washer leaks
I had a Karcher water sprayer that did the same thing , the repair man told me it could be repaired IF he could get parts , guess what, he COULDNT get parts so i had to buy another one , the answer to your question is yes they can be fixed provided you take it somewhere that can get parts . hope this helps
ps i could have fixed it myself with the right part, its not a hard job to strip it and rebuild it

Sounds like a faulty seal around the gun. Repair might be few bucks if you take it in. But the price of the part is probably under a buck. Depends if you want to rip apart it yourself.
