I have a couple of questions for the forum. I am a pretty good shade tree mechanic when it comes to normal ware and tare on a motor, but this ones got me stumped. So i bought a 1993 ford ranger 2wd 5 speed manual with 2.3l motor with 177000 miles on it. I drove it 150 miles from where i bought it to the home and when i got off the interstate it lost all power... (battery dead) so i put in a new battery and alternator and serpentine belt and had to change out EGR Valve... the truck would crank run fine and all during the day. That night was driving and it happened again when the lights are on. I have been told it could have jumped time, or that the cam shaft sensor is bad. So here are my questions.

What could be killing the battery like this?

Could the timing make it where the battery keeps dying?

Could the camshaft sensor make it where the battery keeps dying?

Cant see how timing out or camshaft sensor would cause a battery drain . Load test your alternator and see what readings you are getting . Could also check new battery voltage to be safe , not the first time a new battery has been faulty .Could also check ALL earths / grounds .

Also as R.S Logan said See what voltage is at the battery when it's running. There my be a poor connection too.
