    This is an Interference engine and when its out of time the valves will hit the pistons and it will not continue to turn. You need to have a shop take a look at this before further damage is done. You can get a estimate here http://repairpal.com/estimator?car_type_id=2176 put in your vehicles info and choose timing belt and you can locate a shop here http://repairpal.com/directory?address=76705&car_brand_names=Hyundai
