RE: 2008 Nissan maxima se 2.5 lit.
You may have already guessed correctly. If it cranks like all the plugs have been removed (very fast) then that's where I would go. On some cars you can see the cam shaft through the oil filler on the valve cover to verify the chain has broken while on others you may need to remove the valve covers to see what's going on. This is not a job for the rank amature but if all you want to do is confirm things it's probably within your grasp. Let us know what you find as it may help others reading here.

BTW, remove the fuse for the fuel pump before you get into it so if you need to crank the engine while partially disassembled you don't run the risk of a fire.
