Question about 2003 Hyundai Tiburon
According to Gates chart, you engine is an 'interference engine' meaning that the valves and pistons can collide.
The belt change interval is 60,000 miles/100,000 km.
I had an engine that could interfere but lucked out and no damage occurred which I established only be removing the cylinder head.
I would not install a new belt without pulling the head and inspecting for damage, otherwise even greater damage may occur if one or more valves are bent or have broken the valve stems. If the head is removed, make sure that it and the block are checked for flatness otherwise a replaced head gasket (must be done if head is removed) may fail prematurely. If either is not flat, they must be resurfaced before reassembly.
