Default Loose Ignition Coil

I opened up the hood the other day to see if I could find any visible defects that may be affecting my performance and starting. The car misses at more than 3/4 throttle and it takes about 20-30 seconds of cranking before it will fire.

What I found under the hood was that one of the three ignition coils was literally loose, I could wiggle it back and forth. Looks like the previous owner has a different screw than the original holding it in there. Could this be causing the symptoms I described above?
Thanks, Josh

Awesome!!! I will test all of my coils first thing tomorrow and see if my local auto store has a similar screw. Thanks for the offer and I will contact you if I end up needing one of those screws. Thanks so much!
