Hi,

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.

SOURCE: Timing belt broke on my car. Mechanic I use says

your mechanics advice is dead on, sounds like a very solid tech. as i do not know the condition of the rest of your vehicle, i would consult with the same mechanic that gave you this advice and see what he thinks. if the rest of the car is in good shape, i may be a worthwhile repair. if its rusted underneath, close to needing brakes, etc etc you may spend this money then 6 months down the road have to spend another 1000 in maintenance. this is what needs to be considered. good luck!

General Information

Interference Engines
Engines, chain- or belt-driven, can be classified as either free-running or interference, depending on what would happen if the piston-to-valve timing is disrupted. A free-running engine is designed with enough clearance between the pistons and valves to allow the crankshaft to rotate (pistons still moving) while the camshaft stays in one position (several valves fully open). If this condition occurs normally, no internal engine damage will result. In an interference engine, there is not enough clearance between the pistons and valves to allow the crankshaft to turn without the camshaft being in time.
An interference engine can suffer extensive internal damage if a timing belt fails. The piston design does not allow clearance for the valve to be fully open and the piston to be at the top of its stroke. If the belt fails, the piston will collide with the valve and will bend or break the valve, damage the piston, and/or bend a connecting rod. When this type of failure occurs, the engine will need to be replaced or disassembled for further internal inspection; either choice costing many times that of replacing the timing belt.


Inspection


NOTE For manufacturer-s recommended service interval, refer to the maintenance interval chart located in this manual.
The average replacement interval for a timing belt is approximately 60,000 miles (96,000 km). If, however, the timing belt is inspected earlier or more frequently than suggested, and shows signs of wear or defects, the belt should be replaced at that time.

WARNING Never allow antifreeze, oil or solvents to come into with a timing belt. If this occurs immediately wash the solution from the timing belt. Also, never excessive bend or twist the timing belt; this can damage the belt so that its lifetime is severely shortened.

Fig. Never bend or twist a timing belt excessively, and do not allow solvents, antifreeze, gasoline, acid or oil to come into contact with the belt
Inspect both sides of the timing belt. Replace the belt with a new one if any of the following conditions exist:


Hardening of the rubber-back side is glossy without resilience and leaves no indentation when pressed with a fingernail Cracks on the rubber backing Cracks or peeling of the canvas backing Cracks on rib root Cracks on belt sides Missing teeth or chunks of teeth Abnormal wear of belt sides-the sides are normal if they are sharp, as if cut by a knife.

Fig. Clean the timing belt before inspection so that imperfections or defects are easier to recognize


0996b43f802095a6.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif

Fig. Inspect the timing belt for damage, such as a broken or missing tooth, which may be due to a damaged pulley

Fig. Back surface worn or cracked from a possible overheated engine or interference with the belt cover

Fig. Side wear from improper installation or a defective pulley plate


0996b43f802095a9.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif

Fig. Worn teeth from excessive belt tension, camshaft or distributor not turning properly, or fluid leaking on the belt

If none of these conditions exist, the belt does not need replacement unless it is at the recommended interval. The belt MUST be replaced at the recommended interval.

WARNING On interference engines, it is very important to replace the timing belt at the recommended intervals, otherwise expensive engine damage will likely result if the belt fails.
