First diagnose the slow crank. This could also be the starter but you can bring it to a local auto parts store for a free inspection. They can perform a load test that tests the starter draw as well.

The low idle could be a few things like a throttle body issue, engine sensor failure, etc. This would normally set off a code though.

Get the load test performed and go from there. Report back. If you prefer to bring it to a shop, you can use this link to find a good one near you.
