Completely normal for the 3.3 and 3.8 liter engines. FWIW, I first heard the light knock in the engine in our 1998 DGC back when it had 50,000 km on it, by the time I traded the van in with 275,000 km on the clock the knocking was still there, no better or no worse, and the engine ran as well as it did the day I drove it off the showroom floor.
