Year? Code numbers? Can you post a video of the noise?

I believe that engine has a chain. If the chains are rattling around it, they might be lose or stretched out. They could also have a tensioner or guide issue causing the chains to be loose. A timing chain that is loose and slapping around can cause those codes to pop up because it throws off the cam timing.
