Ford XF Low Oil Pressure and Excessive Oil

i have found 3 veryt loose tappets under tappet cover they are bolted in tight but loose. the push rod the tappet sits on isnt doin there job and have decided that lifters are the prob. as my mechanic said if the lifters are stuffed. u will use oil and loose oil pressure,As the Oil light flickers on and used 4 litres of oil in a week and no smoke from muffler but muffler id burning black.so what does anyone else think? your feedback will be greatly assisted.
