It has a hydraulic timing chain tensioner. When the engine starts the oil pump builds a pressure to push the adjuster against the timing chain to keep it in a silent and firm position. You don't need to push it any way. If the timing chain is noisy the only remedy is to replace it along the tensioner assembly.
