Without opening up you would not know what is wrong. There is a possibility adjusting the valves would solve the problem.

Could be but you need someone to remove the valve cover and make sure of the failure instead of guessing

Very rear for cam caps to fail, only if you have had a low oil pressure problem would you expect this, possibly valve clearance's are getting a little excessive or a possible broken valve spring can also cause a sudden rattle to start.
