Please need Guidance i am broken on this 2007 ford f150 Sign In

I Really need guidance.I have missed 1 whole week of unpaid work, my job depends on using my own truck.I am really worried about missing any further work,in having to provide for my 4 children and wife. Any how I have a 2007 Ford F150, Last week it started with symptoms of slow start and it wanting to stop. There was never a check engine light at the time battery just keep draining after that. I went to firestone they said my alternator was ok and sold me a battery. Next day same problem engine shaking wanting to shut down. I go to a mechanic shop in Santa Clarita CA the mechanic says, the alternator is ok but still needs to be change, so changes the alternator, nothing resolved.Now for the first time check engine goes on. I have these codes P0022 & P0175, Can any please explain the seriousness of these codes, what it could cost in range to repair, I am really broken over it, in the outcome that my finances are depleted. My wife will be able to possibly get around $800 next week from financial aid college to help me , Will that be enough for my repairs.Also should i take my truck to a dealer or is it some any other mechanic should be easily to fix thank you all for your guidance and help..

Those codes mean your bank 2 timing is over-advanced and that bank is running rich. The cause for it could be many things and needs to be diagnosed properly by a competent mechanic. That last one just wasted a bunch of money. Why he would say the alternator was fine but needed to be changed is beyond me. Its either good or its not. You don't need a dealership, but a competent shop that does driveability work.

5.4L VIN 5 engine?

Did you change your oil and filter at the recommended intervals?

What weight oil?
