The downside of a timing chain failure is a valve hitting a piston: bent valves, damaged piston, maybe camshaft and anything in the way of the chain. Thats why I mentioned it. The name "death rattle' isn't a joke; you are looking at a rebuild of the engine. Thats why you check to make sure it isn't a chain problem; its the very definition of a catastrophic failure.
