I assume this has 8 coils,the one you are checking,is it the right one,have you located the exact cylinder miss fire?I believe,if I am not wrong,it has two coils per cylinder,It is showing this on the code.It is the primary coil,coil A ,the secondary coil is not showing up,any way, it is showing that the boot on the coil is leaking,and not sparking the spark plug.Let me know if I can help.

If your getting no fire at the coil. that's why you're not getting fire to your plugs and therefore it won't start. Change out your coil. This should fix the problem.

Run standard misfire tests--pull plug, attach to wire, ground plug threads to engine and crank to observe spark. If spark is absent or weak, try a different plug/wire to narrow down to spark problem. Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6715318-causes_gasoline_engine_misfires . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.
If spark is good, run compression test on bank to check for bad valve/gasket.
If compression is good, suspect injector.
