Engine stopped while driving on highway..I'm told the engine seized possibly due to the timing belt even tho the belt was changed as required..approx. 8'000 miles ago. it now has 121,000 miles. What

Did you see them replace the belt ???
Its a complicated process, and should have taken several hours to replace. Mechanics sometimes lie.
If it was replaced, it's possible the failure occured from lack of oil, metal fatigue, hydraulic lifters can break, valves can drop into engines, any number of things can go wrong.
Unless you pay to have someone open the engine back up, there's really no way to positively prove what happened.

Below is the diagram you will need to replace the belt. The diagram is for a 6cyl. 2.7 engine (most common for that year). Once the tensioner pulley is loose, route the new belt as diagrammed and while applying pressure, tighten the tensioner pulley.

I have a 2004 Santa Fe with 39000 miles when can I aspect the driving or timing belt to go out

The timing belts must be replaced every 5 years or 50k miles, whatever comes first. The other belts whenever they give signs of slipping, no fixed date.

What damage will be done if this car's timing belt breaks? THE CAR HAS 121,000 miles on the 1.5 liter engine.

nothing much but the belt. Upon changing it do the water pump as well for they both last about the same amount of miles on average

I have a 2004 hyundai santa fe with 90000 miles. The timing belt has never been changed. How often should it be changed

It needs to be replaced ASAP> This vehicle has an interference engine which means that if the belt breaks the engine will need to be rebuilt/replaced due to the valves making contact with the piston and bending them. The belt should be inspected around every 10k miles, but should be seriously looked into being replaced at least around 80k miles. Also have them check the pulleys and the tensioner. If these are weak and worn out they should be replaced as well, so that you don't have any problems for some time.
