Depends on what is knocking. Can you tell where the noise is coming from. It could be a rod knock if you believe it is then take a wooden rod and put it on the engine in the crank area an stick it to your ear and listen for the noise. Be careful and do this with the engine idling.

How to change freeze plug in a Chrysler town & country 2006 mini van

Freeze plugs are easy to install if you have room to work. Use a punch or screwdriver to knock in one side of the plug, then grab it with pliers and pull it out. clean the recess thoroughly where the plug sits. You can buy an expanding type plug with a rubber insert. Just set it in place and use a small wrench to tighten the plug. As screw is tightened, the rubber expands and seals the hole. Just ask at parts store for the freeze plug with rubber expander. Different sized freeze plugs, so make sure you get the right fit. Maybe take old one with you, but counter man may be able to look up the correct size by car and engine info.

How to remove and replace main bearing in campshaft.

Firstly get the knocking checked out. Camshaft is more of a sharp rap / knock / clatter.
Why do you think the bearing is at fault. If the cam is knocking then its more than the bearing. It needs stripping and investigating. Before you do anything else get the oil pressure tested with a mechanical gauge. If it's low then you have all sorts of problems. Don't strip or spend anything until a correct diagnosis has been made. You have to establish why its knocking. When was it last serviced? Has it been overheated? Run low on oil? Its 14 years old. How many miles?

Knocking noise from top of motor on a, 06 town and country sounds like it's coming from the intake manifold, could it be an injector?

unlikely -- unless it is a diesel engine ( engine type not mentioned)
check for faulty hydraulic lifter or worn rocker bushes or shaft
have a compression test done to check for loose valve seat insert.

My wife drove the mini van when it was low or almost out of oil. now the engine makes a loud knocking the engine blown or is there a possible fix, to save the engine?

Knocking means you're still low on oil. Try have an oil and filter change. If your engine is blown, you won't hear or feel it cause it's seized. A dying engine from oil starvation would make screeching metal to metal noise. Yours sounds more like a stuck cam follower from oil starvation.

My 04 Town & Country has a loud Knock in the motor

Why did the engine get hot? Coolant loss? Was the oil level too low before more was added? If it was low, how many quarts should have been added? I believe you have serious engine problems. Too much oil is as bad as too little. What happens when it is overfilled, is the oil 'foams', causing a lack of lubrication of internal components. Oil in a foamy state will not lubricate properly. I believe what you hear is a crankshaft or rod bearing that is now damaged. If I'm correct, you need to replace the engine. Sorry for the bad news.

Make sure the oil cap is on the engine properly & oil is'nt spraying out as the engine runs.Check the oil level.Possibly a vaccum hose was knocked off causing air to be sucked in (thats popular) which affect the idle & causes whining.Have you been to this shop before? If you dont find the answer, ask them to help.

Knocking noise in the engine.

have you check the level of the oil... if it is down you are either dumping it on the ground (major oil leak) or it's burning oil quickly... i suspect if you ran it without oil the damage is done... either buy some stp oil conditioner (thickens the oil) or start using 50 weight oil.... all that will do is keep it quiet mostly.

one thing tho... don't try these solutions if you live in a cold weather climate... the oil will get so thick because of the cold you will have trouble turning it over.
