The oil pump drive is supposed to "snap" into the plastic sleeve. Either it was not installed properly to begin with, or the plastic sleeve is broken. This is not something you want to take a chance on, if you have ever seen the damage that happens when the sleeve is missing or broken, you would be immediately removing the pan and pump and making sure it is correct. Once you are that far, you might as well fix it once and for all with a steel sleeved shaft which cannot come out through the top of the engine.
