Yesterday I was having trouble starting my 99 wr400 - it will normally start on first or second kick when choked cold.But this time I had to pull out the hot start to get more air. Then today I checked the oil and found it overfull and more coolant in the exhaust pipe I removed the pipe and kicked it over only to see lots of coolant come gushing out. I then drained all the oil and found it milky and full of coolant as well.

Where do I start? Please help if you can.

Start by washing the bike and cleaning the garage and work bench:p :thumbsup:

After you get it cleaned then tear it down and start looking for a crack in the head area. Cracked head or blown head gasket. Pray for the gasket.

Anything unusual happen the last time you had it out????
