No on the new motor, try to find someone who will put a used one in if you want to keep the Jeep. You can also sell it and find something else, but not a Jeep.

trade it in

A knock could be anything, from a connecting rod, to a pushrod, to a loose rocker,or lifter???? take a wooden pole or small wooden baseball bat, and with the motor running press one end against your ear and the other, in different places of the engine, It will work like a Dr.'s stethoscope and you will hear exactly where the knocking noise is coming from..."IT REALLY WORKS"......hope this helps

th2002: NEVER BUY A NEW MOTOR, YOUR LOCAL JUNK YARD IS FULL OF JEEP IN-LINE 6'S OR 3.7 V6'S, THE BEST THING TO DO IS TRYING TO FIND ONE IN A JEEP STILL, BEFORE THEY PULL IT OUT, THAT WAY YOU WILL KNOW THE TRUE MILEAGE OF THE MOTOR, GOOD LUCK TO YOU....hope this helps
