Question about Hyundai Cars & Trucks
Remove Exhaust pipe, remove all bolts around the sump. (10mm size).
Sump will still stick, because there is no gasket. Its like glued on with silastic, which is acting as gasket. Get a flat screwdriver in the gap between block and sump and leaver it carefully away. Do not bend the sump too much, use a knife to cut the silastc piece by piece. Clean the surfaces well and put new silastic on to refit.

A car can overheat for a lot of reasons.First make sure this is the problem by checking the radiator hose or water level. Open the radiator cap when the car is cold, crank it, and then watch the water level. If it drops when the car warms up this is not the problem.
The tools you will need will depend on what you have to take off to get to it. If you can access the thermostat you should only need a ratchet or wrench to remove it and something to scrape off old gasket with.
Location:The thermostat should be inside the thermostat housing on the motor. Follow your top radiator hose to the place where it goes into the motor. There should be a sort of dome shaped housing there with probably a bolt on either side of it.The thermostat is inside that.
This is a reasonably easy job, but shouldn't be done carelessly. It's also kind of messy.
When the car is cold remove the bolts from the housing with a ratchet. Lots of coolant and water will drain out. But the thermostat will be visible.Pay attention to which side of the thermostat is up.It should just lift up. Remove all the old gasket from around the area and clean it up well. Replace the thermostat and gasket then the bolts. Be very careful not to over tighten the bolts or the housing will be ruined.

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.

I use to have a Hyundai Pony once, there was no cable there.
But still you need to remove the inside cover etc. to get there.
I became an expert blindfolded and a hyunday hater afterwards.
