Had a little bit of time to remove the passenger side valve cover (where all the noise was coming from). I noticed a lot of slack in the smaller chain as seen in the pictures (roughly 8mm of slack). It was difficult to tell how much slack was in the main timing chain but I was able to push the chain tensioner towards the chain about 2-3 mm then put tension on the chain with my finger and the tensioner would retract back to the original position.

I did find a surprise partially covering one of the rear oil passage ways. Must have been from the previous valve cover replacement and nobody bothered to remove it. Take a look below.

I do not know of a way to test the hydraulic lifters to see if they are collapsed so im not sure what to do there..

Here are some pictures:

Can anyone guess what it is?

If you guessed a washer from on of the valve cover bolts you are correct...
