Motor oil in the pump will result in issues that most of all cause permanent damage and destroy the pump.  The oil in the vacuum chamber pump is very specific and is used as a bath for the motor.  Vacuum pumps do not use oil like a car.  There is no need to check to fill the oil.  If the oil is leaking from the pump this is probably a sign of other issues.  In addition when the oil changes color this is a visual reference when to change the oil.

New units have electronics that older units lack.

Newer units have electronic counters on them.  They automatically tell the user when it is time to change the oil.  But many of the older units still in use require the operators to check the oil and be mindful of how many cycles the pump has run. Below is a video on exactly how to change the oil.  A very simple and quick thing to do but vitally important for your vacuum sealer.
