What do you hear when you try to start it? Does it just chug chug chug for a long time? Could be a bad fuel pump, clogged fuel filter, bad spark plugs, or a host of other things. If you can get the OBD scanned with a VAG-COM see if you have any faults.
It sounds like you may have bad gas. Use starter fluid and spray it directly into the intake by removing the air filter and spraying it in then turn over helps if you have someone to turn it over while you spray the starter fluid. If the car starts then you have bad gas or not enough fuel pressure even know you have fuel it may not be enough if the pump is going out. But if the gas is bad it has trouble burning. If this doesnt fix it then the problem is with spark fouled out spark plugs.
I do not know much about this vehicle but if it is diesel it sounds like you should clean and or replace air filter and or glow plugs or grid heater... if it is a gas vehicle changing the fuel filter and checking spark plug gaps and plugs and wires also the cap and rotor may have where witch will cause intermittent and weak spark so you could be getting to much fuel and running rich. also if it has a catalytic converter you may want to check if it is partially clogged and if it is have it replaced hope this helps good luck
It sounds like it is possibly not the transmission at all. I would guess it to be either a fouled spark plug, which is quite common around 100k miles, or a coil that is bad. Check the coils first. If they coils test fine and the truck still chugs, take it to a shop to have them do the spark plugs. The spark plugs in this motor are not a job for an average mechanic. In that Triton motor, from my experience you will have a 50/50 chance of breaking the plugs off in the hole, and without proper tools, you will wish you had paid someone to do it. I've seen too many people learn this the hard way.
sounds fuel or fire related.you can go to autozone and they can diag it for free.if you havent had a tune up in a while you can try to replace spark plugs,plug wires,fuel filter,air filter, oil change ect.
