Question about 2005 Hyundai Elantra
Welcome to Fixya
Since everything had been check there then its gonna be the timing belt the causing the no start problem. Timing belt needs to be repalced every 60,000 or 90,000 miles. If you haven't replace the timing belt, then i suggest you replace it now. You will notice also the sound when you start the vehicle. The sound is not the usual sound when you start the engine. This means that the timing belt is already bad.
Please let me know if you have further questions.
Thank you for using Fixya!

With the engine cold and not running, remove the radiator cap and pour a
50/50 mix of coolant directly into the radiator filling it up to the
neck. Leave the cap off and start the engine. Set the temperature
control in the car all the way up into the red zone. The level in the
radiator will drop as the pump circulates coolant to voids in the engine
and the heater core. Top it off immediately. Do this for 1 or 2 minutes
until the radiator stops taking fluid. Replace the radiator cap and
make sure it is sealed tight. Let the engine continue to idle for a few
minutes. If all is working properly, the radiator fan will eventually
come on and start cycling. You should have heat in the car. If you have
the tank too full to begin with, some fluid may leak out the top as it
expands from the heat generated by the engine. That should subside
If the engine starts to boil over through the tank, shut the engine off and let it cool. Check if coolant appears to be leaking underneath the car (other than from the top of the tank). Note whether or not the electric fan came on or not. You may have a problem with the cooling fan, a bad water pump or sticking thermostat to deal with, which would explain why the coolant level was low to begin with.
Additionally, I suggest check if there have some engine temperature sensor, some model have this device and make wrong at start. Try to scanned the PCM to knowed if some fault code is stored there, some autoshop and autozone make this job for free.
