There is suppose to be a knock sensor on most of the modern engines. There is also a part in the variable camshaft timing engines that would result in knocks and damage if it let the engine timing advance too far. You need a dealer to check the full range of timing on your motor. Tell them you do not want just a trouble code test, but a timing light used.

What would cause a knocking in the motor/engine of a 2010 Chrysler town and Country Touring

A Defective hydraulic valve lifter will make noise, it would be tapping noise, they can be very loud, but I would really need to hear what this is to determine the cause.

Dodge neon 2.0 L sohc how to remove lifters from rocker arms

Ok here is the deal, the lifters are poorly designed and prone to noise or "tick", the way to silence this is not just new lifters but new rocker arm assemblies which include new lifters. Use the best parts not the cheapest ones, factory new one are improved from previous designs. If you still want to just replace the lifters you must take the rockers to a machine shop and have the lifters pressed out and replaced by them. Another suggestion is if you live in a warm climate use 10W-30W synthetic oil.

What's causing valve tapping?

Some tapping is normal with age and mileage. Wear on the cam and lifters and followers causes it.

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.

I was quoted $500 to replace all the lifters. Is this a good price?

That is a ridiculously high price to replace lifters on a 4 or 6 cylinder engine. On the Mitsubishi 4 cylinder motor, the only thing that is needed to do is remove the valve cover and remove the rocker rod. (2 rods which hold the rocker assembly.) Next is remove the lifters from the bottoms of the rockers and pop in the new ones. Be sure to soak the new lifters in oil for 24-48hrs prior to install so they are pre-filled before install. Replace the rocker assembly and torque down to specs. replace valve cover and then start the vehicle. Check that there is no loud tapping noise and do not race the engine until the lifters have pumped up with engine oil. You should replace oil and filter for this engine work as well.

Have a 2006 chrysler 300, 3.5 with loud ticking noise during acceleration, also experiencing loss of power. Replaced both rocker assemblies and performance improved but ticking is still there.

sounds like bad valve seats or seals do you have a oil pressure gauge on your dash.check the pressure.then check your return ports on top of the head thats giving you the problem see if the oil is returning to the oil pan.sometimes the return ports become blocked and the oil stays on top of the head.and see if the oil supply is making up to the head.hope this helps.mark

Motor knock sounds like rocker arms or lifters?

If your engine is knocking the sound with be at the bottom of your oil pan but if you have lifter or rocker arm problems the sound will be at the top of your engine. One other thing you said your car has 315k it might be time to change your oil pump.
