Well sounds like the thumping is probably the float inside the tank that tells you how much fuel is in the tank on your dash thats normal but try changing your fuel filter,hope this helps.

Noise coming from gas tak area

If this is occurring when the tank is full or close to full, or at specific levels of the tank, the most common cause would be the float in the tank sloshing with the gasoline and bumping against the tank itself. This is generally not cause for concern or alarm, nor does it cause any damage, and is simply a result of physics. If it happens at all times, that is still the likely cause, however a quick check over by a dealership might be warranted if it concerns you. Good dealerships will not charge you anything to at least answer the question with complete confidence or take a look.

Passenger side thumping from engine & check engine light

Yes please keep me informed. It is odd that a big place like Goodyear would pull any nonsence. I would say more to the coinsidence theory on this one. Of course they hire sub contractors to do there mechanical stuff so who really knows. If the mechanic gets a salary and a commsion then anything is possible. You might grab the front of the water pump and shake it back and forth and see if there is any play in it. Your uncle will know where to do this. Its up by the fan on the engine. I am not saying you don't know to and i am not trying to insult your intelligence. Just making sure. The water pump should not move at all. If it is going out then under more pressure from the AC might cause it to make noise only sometimes. Just another thought. The Raz

Coolant light keeps coming back on

yes these issues could be related ... if you have a bad thermostat the steam will thump inside the plastic coolante tank. also if you do not bleed the cooling system it will cause the same issue. there is usually a bleeder screw on the tube coming up from the water pump.
