Hi, your engine has a timing belt, not a chain. The P0016 cam/crank timing misalignment is a pretty good sign the timing is off. The belts usually aren't due for replacement until 100k miles but for it to be off, you most likely have a failing water pump and or tensioner pulley. Definitely pull the timing cover and check the timing to start.
