I have an 06 Durango with the 4.7l. It was making a lifter type noise, the oil light came on and then the engine light. I shut it down but appears the motor is shot. I ordered a new crate motor, and having shop service transmission and differentials.. Anything I am missing?

Based on what we have seen at the shop, the 4.7L is prone to exhaust value 'seat' dislodgment > Keep the cooling system serviced ... Do not let 'this' engine overheat! .. While operating vehicle IF temperature gauge ever starts climbing toward hot, pull over and turn engine off!! .. Call tow truck.
