Question Answered: what is a batter sensor

That is the battery temperature sensor. You should have the battery, and charging system, checked, as well as a check for a drain when the vehicle is turned off.

The VR6 uses timing chains, and they are on the back of the engine, and the engine, has to be removed to gain access to them. It is not an easy repair, and can take 9-10 hours to complete.

The EVAP monitor in these cars is notoriously difficult to set, it may take up to 6 drive cycles, with 17 hours between drive cycles for the EVAP I/M System Status Indicator to transition to YES. This is assuming you have no pending codes in the system. The catalyst is not much easier. You car needs a very specific drive cycle to enable the monitors. You can drive it forever, but if those conditions are not met, it won't transition to YES. Some states allow 1 monitor to be NOT READY because of the problems getting them to transition. Check your emission inspection laws to verify this. Your local dealer will probably be able to get the EVAP monitor to transition. All of this assumes that a problem in the systems is preventing the transition. A check for pending codes will verify this.
Question Answered: Noisy/Grinding Steering

You probably lost some power steering fluid. With the loss, especially a partial loss, the system will aerate, and become noisy. There were some issues with power steering line, and pump leaks of this nature on Hyundais. Check the fluid level in the reservoir, and see if it is low. It should be markedly so. You can refill it, but it may just leak out again. It may appear milky, or foamy becauise of the aeration. The system can be damaged because of the aeration condition, and the fluid loss.

It's on the right side bottom of the engine. The intake duct needs to be removed to access it.
