Take/Tow your vehicle to an authorized Hyundai dealership and pay the diagnostic fee... they will tell you exactly what the problem is and the cost of parts/labor to fix it... at least this way you'll know what the problem is and what's required to fix it.

And if it wont move in forward or reverse I would say it's time for a new/rebuilt transmission

not sure what type of noise it was? sometimes if the starter drive gear is worn out they stick and that is a loud noise, not very serious. starter drive is only a few dollars, but its a little more for labour. if it is the starter drive usually it wont actually start the car it will just spin then if you let go and re start a few times it catches and starts it up still. hope this helps , good luck
