An OBD2 scanner is like fifteen bucks these days. I could armchair diagnose but really, go get one. Codes aside, my random ass guess is a vacuum leak or something unplugged that needs to be plugged back in. Seriously, scan the codes. It isn't hard.

Productive, not jerky edit: how did you flush the engine? Did you remove or disconnect anything to do this? If this was a simple coolant flush from the radiator I'd say the timing is a coincidence but if you disassembled anything to empty coolant from the engine knowing what would help. Also, do not repeatedly start your car if you can avoid it. At best you're running rich and will flood/foul your plugs.

Knowing where you live helps, some places (Autozone) scan codes for free.
Getting a scanner that also does realtime data is best, figure on about $50US and works on anything 1996 and newer.

How many miles?
Any mods?
When was last tuneup?
What else was done?

Pop the crank sensors out (one bolt) and give it a clean.
check for vaccum leaks when running or perished hoses
iacv (idle air control valve) may need a clean also
some quick things you can try if you don't have a scan tool

So recently I fixed the fuel pump that was the 1 cause of my issue but I was able to use a scanner tool my Crankshaft Sensor is giving me a issue so I am working on getting a new one from Rockauto... but really quick on the 2001 Hyundai Tiburon is there a reason why it is hard to pump gas into them because it acts like it's full but it's not I am able to pump more gas in but it seems like there a blockage or Hyundai did something wrong with the tubing on them cars????

There is a charcoal canister under the fill tube that gets clogged which causes the petrol bowsers to think it is full when it isn't

Search on here for "charcoal canister", common issue on almost any brand is topping off the fuel tank when filling. This dumps liquid gas into evap venting tubing and clogs the canister as well as floating bits into hoses and maybe even valves by the canister.
Common complaint is frequent gas nozzle tripping when filling as well as some evap OBDII codes.

Most just empty the charcoal out.......
