Question about 1996 Hyundai Accent
More than likely the water pump seal has failed. You will have to replace the waterpump to get this fixed. It takes quite a while for water to start circulating due to the thermostat which blocks water from flowing into the radiator when it is still cold (less than 90deg celsius). Due to the overheating the thermostat may also have been damaged and stuck in the closed position. It is not expensive so have it replaced along with the waterpump to be safe. A cracked head will not leak water outside the engine. (In 25 years I've not seen this once)
