Default 2002 dodge ram engine

I have knocking in the engine doesnt sound like a rod more like the lifts also i have water in the oil (sludge) and it runs hot can engine be fixed? What can i do to fix the problem? Is there an engine that will fit and match up. Has dodge made thid engine better? Would love to have it running right again.
