Timing chains will be noisy or broken. The loss of power will,be from sensors that are not operating as required and upsetting the pre set parameters of the CPU. have the fault codes read before you waste money and get to the real problem. Mention of timing chain fault may have some credibility if the engine has variable valve timing as the ECM determines the cam shaft positioning at rpms and that is controlled by a solenoid that controls the sprocket actuator on the end of the cam shaft. Again it will show up in the fault codes.
