You can even keep your rig from dropping fluid in the future by following these useful maintenance tips.
If you see oil spots on a driveway or in a garage, your mower might need a good tune-up. Start by replacing the air filter, oil filter and fuel filter, as dirty or clogged riding mower parts reduce flow and increase engine friction. Drain and refill the engine with new oil, and clean the engine fins for proper cooling. You should also inspect the spark plugs for wear and the air filter for clogging, replacing them if necessary.
If your machine is running roughly or only operating with the choke on, check the carburetor for any stuck or misaligned moving parts. The carburetor creates an air-and-gas mixture that is imperative for proper operation, and if this mixture is too rich or too lean, you may want to rebuild or replace the entire assembly.

If oil is seeping from the top of the engine case, or you have low compression, the head gasket may be blown. To replace the gasket, remove the cylinder head, and thoroughly clean the mating surfaces for an assured seal.
