The connector could be bad at the coil, the connector pins in the coil could be loose, wiring to the coil could have a problem.Going with what you stated about wiggling the connector I would replace the connector first as it will be the least expensive to fix and go from there.

well coil runs so its fine but you have to play with the wires to make it run sounds like a bad connection your connector is worn out. you might get away with taking the connector off and cleaning it. you should follow the wire you are pulling to make it start and check its connections to make sure the wire is not loose.
