Car won't start on 2005 Acura TSX

I noticed about a week ago my car has been trouble starting. It make a noise like it chugs or struggles to turn over and this morning it wouldn't even turn over it just makes like a ticking noise now so I got it towed and when the guy came he said it sounds like a timing chain?? Could it be? It's a 2006 tsx with 110000 km.

Sounds to me like you have a starting or charging system problem. Get the battery, starter and alternator checked. I don't understand how this symptom could be caused by a broken timing chain, and I sure hope it isn't because a broken chain (or maybe the tensioner) could be a big problem. If this explanation sounds right to you, find another mechanic.

I started having that problem in my car and it was happening because the timing chain was beginning to slip off. I didn't learn about the timing chain being off until I had to have the motor replaced at my expense. I wouldn't wait and get it checked out.
