It sounds like you are referring to the oil in the swash plate housing. You can use a multi grade motor oil such as 20w50 or 10w40. Fill to about half way over the swash plate. If the old oil has gone amilky colour, please replace the oil seals first.

You may need to replace the jug gasket or whatever gasket it is leaking from. If it is by a connection or line, you may be able to use silicone or o-ring

I have the same Problem, the leak is from the seam of the Manifold housing. There is a small crack in the seam. A manufacturing defect.. A New Manifold Complete Replacement K2.26*
Part # 97501760 is $61.03, about the half the price what I paid for this pressure washer at Walmart... :(
If under 1 year old, and you can find a receipt,Karcher will replace the whole Pressure washer under warranty.

Usually electric pressure washers only have oil on the pump, so its very likely that you will find the problem there. I'd say check all the pump seals and if that doesnt solve the problem, you can check to see if all bolts are tight when you close the pump back.
If by any chance you are looking for a new machine and/or parts for your machine, log in to www.roncoshop.com where you will be able to find pretty much anything for your preassure washer.
