first thing i need to know is did the timing belt break?
second is are you sure you aligned the timing marks and after the belt tensioner was tight you rechecked to make sure the timing stayed where you had it.
next step would be a compression check to if a valve was bent whenchanging the belt
i have seen this happen and this engine is an interferance engine.

There a lot of cuses for this but you need to scan the vehicule before to know what sensor is having troubles, if is too much expensive the scan in your city consider to buy one. I see in ebay a lot of types of OBD2 scanners for $25-30!

DID THE BELT BREAK AND THEN IT WAS CHANGED. If so then you may have bent valve. IF NOT then vehicle may be timed wrong. Here is a diagram of your timing marks, http://www.2carpros.com/car_repair_information/tec_info/2002/hyundai/accent/2002_hyundai_accent_timing_belt_diagram_marks.htm contact if you need more help.

There is a sensor (dont exactly remember witch 1) That is related with the ECM Motor That Gets The car Just Few Little rpms more wen you turn to encounter the HP needed for the powersteering pomp to be able to assist you turning.. i think its the Knock Sensor Not Sure You should look that up seriously cuz ive seen that kind of problem before, it was the sensor in default reading BUT you SHOULD be able to see the problem with OBD2 diagnostic, if not ask your mecanic to test the resistance of the sensor following the specs of the manufacturer
