You might really need this truck but it doesn't sound like the truck needs you or more so that the truck really needs you to do some work on it.

Water, the key to the earth is something I feel is killing your truck. Are you losing coolant. Check the cooling system. I suspect you overwork the starter and battery to get this vehicle to start. I suspect that one of the head gaskets is failing.
