I have a kobalt 8Gal1.8hp hotdog air compressor that is technically oiless; however, I just moved and the movers shipped it either upside down or on its side and it's covered in oil. I don't see any cracks or where the oil came from within the compressor. Do I need to add more oil to it somehow? There's no drain plug or filler plug on it.

It may also be coming from the motor bearing. I took the cover off, wiped off the oil, and ran it to max capacity (150 psi). Seems to be working ok. Not sure for how long though.

Yes that is it but naturally it says oil free pump. I'm not sure if it is from the piston or the motor bearing.
