Trx700

Ok guys so i recently purchased another xx , ( used) with a bunch of goodies, changed the oil , flushed the coolant cleaned out the air box, etc... & then resulted the bike had a fuel problem took it to the shop & they cleaned out the fuel system , cleaned the injector& changed my fuel peetcock lever, old fuel.. etc.. & now my Oil seems to be liquidfy like if some how there is water in the oil tank or coolant. Not sure what happend there bike does fire up but after 10 minutes of idle temperature light comes on ... ( fan does not come on) & today it did the same thing , it also started to leak coolant from above the radiator , all this was not happening before... i took it to the shop,


** not sure if this has anything to do with it ... but i did see them add more coolant which was some kind i never seen before,(basically 2 kinds of coolant) in it....

Not sure what i should do next besides drain ( oil & change filter???) Input & feedback greatly appreciated)💯💡

I would drain the engine oil into a clear or white container and watch the liquid for a few days to see if it separates. I would do the same with the engine coolant.

How did the oil look? Did the oil smell like gas?

Do you think water got into the oil from the cooling system or through the air intake?
