Need more info here, is the pump oil level right and not overfilled? does it spray even when the pump is not running? Did this start suddenly or did it gradually get worse? Does it seem to have air pressure leaking out with the oil? An overfilled crankcase can vent oil out but so can a busted piston. A stuck backflow valve from the tank can let pressure back into the pump where it could leak past the rings and pressurize the crankcase however that looks like a lot of oil. Tell us a little more about how it is acting.
