IPR plug?

I'm wondering if the plug for the IPR sensor is supposed to be loose. I think it's the IPR sensor. Its the plug on the HPOP closest to the fuel bowl. The one with the metal clip. I have some troubles with unburnt diesel upon cold starts and I noticed that this plug was quite loose in the HPOP. It doesn't look broken so I'm not sure if it's supposed to be like that.

It should be nice and snug... is it fully plugged in with the wire clip flipped down?

it's the piece attached to the IPR that is loose not the plug itself. If I were to unplug the cord I could wiggle the end the plug goes into.
