this is absolutely normal with a well maintained broken in engine. the engine is at rest when stopped,so the ecm lowers idle till you drive,which puts the engine under load.if it causes the engine to stumble or die,then replace air filter and set up the idle.

check the water level in the radiator (not the reservoir) Check the temp sender unit is working by temporarily touching the wire to the engine and seeing if the gauge goes immediately to hot.. If so replace the sender unit.

Sounds like a bad starter motor or a faulty / intermittent Earth connection.
First check all the battery power and earth leads where they connect to the Battery Terminals, Engine, Starter Motor and Body. If possible disconnect, clean thoroughly by removing any corrosion or paint, with a wire brush or coarse sond paper, that could cause a poor connection, and reconnect making sure all are tight.
Try tapping the starter with a hammer or tyre lever while the starter is operated. If it works then it means that the brushes in the starter are worn out or the solenoid is not making proper contact to switch the high current required. Auto electricians will usually have exchange units available for replacement.
