That noise is probably the coolant boiling inside the engine. Is the cooling fan running after the engine is shut off? I also suspect that your coolant may be weak and need replacing. I would do a cooling system flush, change radiator hoses and the thermostat and install new coolant in a 50-50% mixture.
