John Deere D130 excessive crankcase pressure problem

Trying to solve a problem for my neighbor who has a nearly new John Deere D130 riding mower with the twin cylinder Briggs/Stratton engine. He has change oil twice now and both times oil has shot out the drain hole about 5 feet when he removed the drain cap. Both times he had the oil fill cap removed so that pressure should have been relieved, but apparently not. Any ideas?

Welcome to the forums.

Nearly new, like still under warranty? If so, I would take it to the dealer and not mess with it myself.

If the cap was removed, there could be no pressure in the crankcase. I have no idea why it would shoot out 5 feet.

Thanks for your ideas

I told him to take it back to the dealer. Since I never got to see it happen I suspect he might be exaggerating when he says it shoots out 5 ft. I can't imagine that much pressure in a crankcase.
