Question about Hyundai Elantra
Whatever the reason for the engine siezing, it will be to your advantage to replace the radiator as debris may already be blocking a number of the lines.
As to the overheating, the most likely reason is a failed water pump (most likely), or a thermostat stuck closed (least likely), or a coolant leak (noticeable). Since engine would be replaced, the water pump and thermostat would also be replaced and the leak would be verified upon installation of the new engine.
Incidentally, I was made to understand that Hyundai warranties their drivetrain for 10 years or 100,000 miles. I believe the engine is a part of the overall drivetrain system.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
