Car Troubles

On what was supposed to be my second trip of the day out to Medina, Ohio my car started to act funny. The radio shut down then the motor started to make a death sound. On a hill many miles away from home the car died. Not knowing what to do I had the car towed home. The next day the car started but then died again. I was able to charge the battery and make it to my mechanic. The alternator was toast (and not the good kind) as well as a ball joint (whatever that is). With the job I do I practically live in that car. To pay for the work I had to take out a loan with about a %1000 interest. 

I really could use any help anyone is willing to give. Any money would go to paying off the loan, but most of all will make it possible for me to do my job and deliver packages to Medina. I don't like asking for help. I think there are so many people out there with more significant problems than mine, but I can't see a way out of this problem. I would be eternally grateful for anything anyone was willing to offer.

Thank you for your time

and a special thanks to anyone willing to help.
