I have a 95 Camaro as well with the same problem. My problem was that my cam was eating up my lifters, and then they tried to fix the problem, and adjusted the valves wrong -- thus causing the thumping noise.

AnswerIf you hear it when first pulling out or turning from a stop, it could be loose or damaged motor mounts.

The engine compartment would be the area under the hood that the engine sits in.

Mine has done this twice, both times it was the pulleys in the front of the engine. It could also be the belts.

Hi firewall on cars keep the engine isolated from passenger compartment .This eliminates fumes heat and noise.

sounds like the alternator belt is loose, check it out and let me know.

If it is a thumping and a front wheel drive car, it is probably one of the axles.

Under the hood where the engine is mounted is the engine compartment.

The firewall is the steel bulkhead that separates the engine compartment from the driver compartment.The firewall is the steel bulkhead that separates the engine compartment from the driver compartment.
