If the STUD comes out. The most practical thing to do is buy a threaded repair stud. Thread (tap) the existing hole, place sealer in the threads and screw repair stud into the hole.

If you have some that are loose, the rest won't be far behind. I'd do them all.

Excessive valve spring pressure is what pulls them out, anything above valve open pressure of about 270 lbs will do it. The inexpensive way to prevent pullout is to use a pinning kit....
