New Dodge Owner

Hi All,

I'm a new dodge nitro owner, I have loved the look and feel of these things for a long time, I did manage to get my hands on a cheap 2.8 crd sxt version which is awesome, but I bought it from auction, and well has an engine knock I'm trying to work out now, been trying to find some info on it but there isn't much out there, I have cleared the codes and P0046 seems to be the only one coming back now, I'm going to take the tappet cover and have a look, sounds like a dropped valve or something, doesn't seem to be a lot of oil flowing around in the filler cap so maybe a start, anyhow love the car just want to be able to use it.

Thank you
