You've got roughly 100K on that fluid now and have been towing to boot. It could be worn out fluid that's causing it to slip. I'd change it along with the filters. You've got nothing to lose.

Yeah, if you leave the cap off and see coolant shooting out from a dead cold start, it's VERY likely the head gasket. The coolant circulates in a closed loop in the heads, etc., till the thermostat...

Might be out of timing then, in which case it might be a good thing that you weren't able to start it. Even cranking it might do damage though, so stop that until you are able to verify. If you have...

Have you tried a full reset by pulling the battery cables and turning the key to start position? Try that before you go buying stuff. Also, that thumbwheel switch could be going bad too.
