Do I need a timing chain on 2006 Chevrolet Malibu

I started my car and it ran for a second and died. Acted like was not getting gas. IT FINALLY STARTED AND BACKFIRED REALLY LOUD AND NOW MY BROTHER IN LAW SAYS IT IS A NO TOLERANCE ENGINE AND NEEDS AT LEAST A TIMING CHAIN, COULD IT BE SOMETHING ELSE?
