  Sounds like the timing is way off.  It could be a bad injector or more but
it'd really be puffing out the white smoke at idle if one was THAT bad.  You
may have a bad ground where the negative cable bolts to the transmission.
The rotation of the engine causes a loss of current and the stop solenoid
closes.  It could explain the starter too.  Not highly likely but a
I'd suspect fairly retarded timing as most likely.  If an injector were that
bad your glow plug will likely be missing the heating element prortion of it.
