Thumbs down New here and own a 2008 wrangler unlimited x

Knocking engine pretty sure after reading other posts that it's now the oil filter, but it died on me yesterday after the knocking got louder. I immediately shut everything off trying not to make it worse but had to get it towed home. Any suggestions or questions would help out tremendously! Thanks in advance.

Because this is the newbie check-in area, you may not get the answers you are looking for. It sounds like something more than the oil filter (maybe oil pump?). By all means, as mentioned above, the JK Tech area is the best place for answers.

In the mean time, I just like to say . . .
