P0008 code

Recently on my 2009 v6, on start up there's an odd rattle noise and then the check engine light came on. Got it scanned and got this p0008 code. Reading about timing chains, is there anything else it could be?
Thanks

I found one article that mentioned it could have something to do with the positioning of the crankshaft... but I asked a mechanic at my dealer about it and he said it was very rare and almost always meant the timing chain(s).

If you have a P0008, this is the end result. Just had mine go bad last month.

Yes, my mechanic sent me the same photo. Said this engine is WAY over engineered! All is back together and well now..

Happy to share. I was amazed of the setup when my mechanic sent me the pics. My car has 77K on it and he told me that this is how the internals looked when he took the covers off. He thanked me for using synthetic as it would not look this good if it was conventional oil.
