Check your serpentine belt tensioner - the pulley on it could be seizing causing the belt to run hot. If you don't have a serpentine belt - check you v belts for running hot caused by something seizing. Is the smell like burning rubber? Also check the accessories connected to the belt(s) and see of their pulleys are turning at the same speed as the belt. If something is seizing up - it could be the thumping you hear. My suggestion is to check your belt(s) for overheating damage then isolate the cause.
