    Two trucks with similar problems. Are you refueling them at the same place? It sound like bad or water in your gasoline for starters. Possibly debris that has clogged the filters. That's were I would look first.

Sounds like one of the ignition coils might be bad.

Depends in the mileage since the transmission was last serviced. It sounds like low pressure from the pump. It could be just a filter. You did not say where the leaking seal is, but a leaking seal will not fix itself.
