1 litre of oil is enough in a 2.4 to get the oil light to go out, and stay out. I know this for a fact.
the min mark on the dipstick is right at the bottom of the stick, if adding 0.8l brings the level back on the stick, adding 2 litres in total will make it overfilled.
Find out where the oil went though, JTD engines shouldn't consume a noticeable amount of oil during a whole oci. Check the intercooler pipes, and the exhaust pipes if you can't find any leaks.
I've had knocking from the aux belt area which turned out to be a failing tensioner, but the crankshaft pulley isa definite possibility
