Sounds to me one of your cats is blocked or collapsed, especialy as youve mentioned rotten eggs, get it checked out at an exhaust centre, hence prolonged starting....

second that, my old volvo did the same thing. Dont' park it over dry leaves or grass as the insueing fire will make your wife's wish come true.

Uhhh...if the universe is still expanding, WTF is it expanding into?
