Question about 1996 Hyundai Accent
You need to get a manual. Try the Haynes manual for your car. Try autozone; generally available for around $20. This is not the type of thing that can be covered here in enough detail to do you any good. You need a picture.
Buy new timing belt. Disconnect negative battery cable. Remove timing belt cover. make sure cylinder #1 is set at TDC. making sure all components are properly aligned and loosen pensioner to remove old timing belt. Install new timing belt. Tension belt, ensure all components are aligned properly, replace timing belt covers and reconnect battery.

first thing i need to know is did the timing belt break?
second is are you sure you aligned the timing marks and after the belt tensioner was tight you rechecked to make sure the timing stayed where you had it.
next step would be a compression check to if a valve was bent whenchanging the belt
i have seen this happen and this engine is an interferance engine.

Was It Starting Before?
Who Changed It?
If The Belt Broke And The Belt Was Just Put Back On Without It Being Put In (TDC) Top Dead Center The Car Will Not Run. Warning! Trying To Start It Over And Over Will Destroy The Engine.The Engine Works By Being (TDC) Top Dead Center The Timing Controls When The Cylinders Come To The Top. The cylinders Are Controlled By The Timing So When The Spark Plugs Try To Ignite. The Cylinders Are Not In Position And Thus Will Not Create Combustion For The Engine To Run.

With regrets, Not likely, pull the vlave cover and observe the height of the valves, if it is bent it should be not quite as tall as the rest.

you wont need to change it until at least 100,000 miles. Typically that will last the life of the car. But alot of people, including myself, wait until it breaks to replace it. It is about $1000 to replace because the engine has to be partially disassembled.
