My tortoise poop is runny and i think he got loose motions cause he is going toilet frequently sometimes 3 times a day. I have changed his diet from vegetables to only grass and hibiscus. I'm really worried 😞 please help.

Can we see pictures of your enclosure? What are the enclosure temps and humidity?

"Sneezing and coughing" is not normal. So I'm going to guess that the runny poop isn't caused by the diet and is probably an outward sign of a more serious issue.
You need a veterinarian.
