Hi renjim, Welcome to 2carpros and TY for the donation.

Has a lot of blue smoke out of the exhaust when idling

Its an indication of oil burning in the cylinders could be valves, rings and cylinder wear problem as for the starting problem check and test the idle air control valve /ISC and throttle position sensor, coolant temperature sensor and mass airflow-to include a fuel pressure test.
