Try removing spark plugs and turning engine over by hand with socket wrench on harmonic dampner if it spins freely probably not engine problem fluid in cylinders will cause hydro lock indicating blown head gasket or injector stuck wide open. a broken timing belt would still allow engine to turn over as your car should not have an interference engine. If engine will not turn by hand with spark plugs out susspect internal engine damage siezed bearings broken rod and so.

SOURCE: engine idle trouble
that is not a probelem it is the fuel system warming the engine and turbo
you should always warm up a turbo car before jumping in and taking off and cool the engine before shuting it off turbos are the most temprelental engine part there is. those steps will prolong the life of the turbo and engine. my starion with the g54b 2.6 does the same thing

I had this exact same problem...turns out it has to do with a recall having to do with the stop lamp switch. I took it to the dealership and it only took about 20 minutes form them to fix it.
Hyundai is recalling 531,894 MY 2006-2007 Accent, Entourage, Sonata, MY 2007 Azera, Elantra and Santa FE, MY 2005-2007 Tucson and MY 2007-2008 Veracruz vehicles. The stop lamp switch in the affected vehicles may malfunction. A malfunctioning stop lamp switch may cause the brake lights to not illuminate when the brake pedal is depressed or may cause the brake lights to remain illuminated when the brake pedal is released. A stop lamp switch malfunction may also affect the operation of the brake-transmission shift interlock feature so the transmission shifter would not be able to be shifted out of the park position. It may also cause the electronic stability control (ESC) malfunction light to illuminate, and it may not deactivate the cruise control when the brake pedal is depressed. Any of these malfunctions, alone or in combination, may lead to a crash. Dealers will replace the stop lamp switch free of charge. The recall began on April 23, 2009. Owners may contact the Hyundai Customer Assistance Center at 1-800-633-5151. This recall was the result of a Preliminary Evaluation conducted by the Office of Defects Investigation.
