Possible bad gas valve?

I have a comfortmaker enviroplus2. Randomly the pilot will just go out. Sometimes it just wont turn on, others it will quit while the furnace is running. If I tap on the gas valve, it will light every time.
I've read that even though tapping on the valve fixes it every time, that might not be the problem. Since tapping on the valve jars everything else, it could be just about anything. I took off all wires and cleaned connections. It still does it. Its getting cold and I'm getting sick of going downstairs to tap on the furnace all the time. I've had to go down there 3 times within the last hour.
Any input would be great

Need more infor to be sure but it sounds like a smart valve.
Your brand and model number would be helpful and the age of the furnace and is it an 80 or90% furnace.
