That would be my guess

NoDubs,

Timing chain would be my guess, or one of the timing chain guides/rails has worn through and is now in your oil pan bouncing around.

tvpierce,

One of the reasons to change your timing chain and the guides/rails as a preventative service is so that you don't have to remove your oil pan (additionally) to retreive pieces of the guides/rails that drop down the front of the engine into your oil pan when performing this service.
