Broken lift bolt fixed, now no lift and a CEL

So ive had a broken lift bolt for a while now, and never got around to changing it, so my dad told me if i took it to a shop, hed pay. i took it to the shop yesterday.

They extracted the bolt, flushed my engine due to some metal shavings, changed my oil and replaced my rear brakes.

i took it real easy driving from the shop to my house, checking for noises etc... on the way to work, i wanted to see how lift felt. i took it up to 6500 and nothing happened. a CEL came on.

i called the shop and i am taking it in tomorrow morning, but is there any ideas on what happened?

did they take the rocker shafts all the way out? You can also wind up with this condition of you mix them up.

anyways listen to Smaay on this one - its probably the oil control valve unplugged

they took it all apart and everything is plugged in (supposedly) and they are charging us $125 for a diagnosis about the CEL.
is this BS or what should i do?
For them to charge you for diagnosis they have to actually diagnose it - unless they can tell you definitively what is wrong don't pay
