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?

ok, whats the OCV when i ask them
ok, ill tell them to check that.
they ended up not having to take the rocker shafts out, so i bet its the ocv.
thanks guys
i took it in this morning, and the guy kept asking what it was doing. i told him.
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?
well they fixed it... it was a metal shaving blocking an oil port (what they said)
everything is working fine now though. ive only taken it into lift twice, im a little nervous to..
thanks for the help though.
