Best Answer

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.
