4 door 08 JK Oil Pump and engine Knocking

I have been reading the forums for a while. I have found some very helpful things, I am hoping you guys can help.
I have 2 problems:
1. engine starting knocking a while back about a week or 2 ago, when i took it to the dealership and they told me that i need a new engine. The knocking is only coming from the Passager side of the valve cover, so i am thinking its a bad rocker or lifter. (have not had a chance to take off the cover)
2. oil pump went bad or broke all together. I had to have the wife tow me back home for 99 miles. (long trip when its about 6F outside and you cant run your engine due to it sound like pot and pans being slammed together.

I need some help, I am trying to find some info about the oil pump or a replacement pump but not having any luck.
