If they checked it for you, do not be too concerned. Maybe it has nothing to do with the engine. refill the coolant level full and listen . If it keeps doing it have somebody else look at it.

My pt cruiser has a bumping noise coming from under the hood when in park or sitting still

Get it on a lift and check the engine mounts, exhaust and then under the hood for loose trunking etc. Look for shiny marks on hoses etc to denote rubbing on something.

I heard a ticking sound coming from the rear wheel area on my 1995 Lexus ES300. Is this a serious problem?

It could be! I would look under the car to see if something got caught, or if something is rubbing. If nothing, go to have it put on a hoist and inspected. It might be noise from the brakes that your brake padsneed replacing. Good luck!

I have a 2004 Grand Prix at 170k miles.. i used for work traveling a lot of hwy miles a day. Yesterday there was smoke coming from the hood and water splattered over my engine. All of my radiator coolant...

i had the same problem as well. you have to change a lillte part, plastic part that looks like an " L " that connects two metal tubes. they are located be the alternator, and serpentite belt. the belt comes off and the reserved water radiator also so you can have more space to work on. the part will cost you maybe $8. I hope this tip will help you!

I would recommend replacing the timing belt and 60,000 miles and most definitely at 90,000, you most definitely won't hurt anything to go ahead and replace it now.
