SOURCE: 2001 Jeep grand cherokee motor knock 4.7 motor

First, if the noise is from the upper part of the engine and is more of a tapping than a knock, likely you have a problem in the valvetrain, most often a bad lifter or worn rocker arm. If the noise is low, deep inside, the noise is from a bearing. This is generally accompanied by lower than normal oil pressure. Regardless of the underlying cause, correcting the cause will not stop the knock. To do that correctly, the engine needs to be removed and all crankshaft bearings and the crankshaft itself need to be replaced (crank can sometimes be "undercut" and thicker bearing shells can be used depending upon the amount of wear.) If caught very early, sometimes only one bearing can be replaced in-car, but in 99% of all cases I have ever seen, most will fail again, sometimes more severely if done this way.

Shifting cable has rested on Transmission, how do you replace the whole shifting cable from Transmission to shifter in car,

You have to pull the steering column down to replace that end of the cable.

Hope this helps.

Shift my jeep in 4wd now the shifter is loose and it is staying in 4wd

Sounds like the rod from the 4WD shifter has come loose form the transfer case or from the shifter lever. Some use a cable. Look under the vehicle. A rod or cable will go from the shifter to the transfer case. If it is a cable and the ends appear attached the cable is broken inside the housing. Reattach ends of rod or replace cable .

You did not need to remove the heater box to replace the cable. There is a hole in the floor the cable passes through.
