cam to timing marks but then had to pull belt off
crank to get crank on mark and now it kinds back
fires but doesn't sound like their isn't any

Sounds like bent valves from timing marks not properly aligned

If it sounds like it is back firing you have bent valves. Sorry to inform you of this but it's the truth ..the 1.5 liter Hyundai engine is interfience engine meaning if the timing belt breaks or slips you will have the pistons and valves hit each other causing major damage
