The pump has a section with pistons that must have oil. The oil/piston housing is between the motor and the water portion of the pump. Some seals, somewhere are leaking. If you run it without oil it will destroy itself. You must get it fixed and I would do so before using it again.

you have to lower the pressure at the lance for the detergent to be drawn into the hose. It works on a venturi principle.
on the lance you will have to twist or pull back the end for it to go into low pressure mode.
the easiest way to check it is working is to take out the lance extension , the bit that fits into the trigger on a bayonet fitting. run the machine and see if it then draws in detergent.
If it doesnt draw detergent then look to see if there is a detergent valve fitted to the filter that goes into the bottle and check that it is fully open. sometimes ther is a non return valve fitted into the filter too.
it could be that this non return valve has stuck. A poke with a bit of stiff wire should free it off its seat if it is that problem.
hope this helps a little

A common problem with these is a pressure valve inside the unit that controls the power to the pump. If the unit has not been used for some time the valve can stick.
Does the motor run when you press the trigger?
Please respond and I will advise further. (add a comment)
