The noise could be caused by the timing chain but it could also be due to others malfunctions. When timing chains are worn, the engine would tend to rattle for a short period of time at initial start up from cold or whe engine has been stopped for a short period of time.
Book time for timing chain replacement is about 11 hours and it requires the cylinder head to be removed.
Parts should cost between $350 to $ 500 depending on what needs to be replaced.
