I'm guessing your mechanic mentioned this, but you should probably go e a s y with it until you have dealt w/the pulled stud issue.

If you don't, the stud(s) will eventually run out of adjustment or pull completely. If that happens, the lifter can get kicked out of its bore. This will cause a loss of oil pressure.
