👍Yes, that code could create a starting issue.
You don't necessarily need to buy a new VCMA, in fact the history of this has shown that it's the least likely of the possible suspects. Remove the actuator, check for broken linkage, and (if nothing is broken), test the actuator electrically. If no issues turn up from doing those things, remove the intake manifold and check for stuck and/or bent runners. Runner issues can often be cleaned or otherwise fixed, instead of buying a replacement manifold.
I recommend getting the P200A issue corrected, before trying anything else to fix the erratic starting.
