Start by changing the fuel filter first if that doesnt fix it, have the egr valve looked at and\or fuel pressure regulator

I have a draw on the battery on my 85 Toyota pickup it kills a fully charged battery in about 2 hours... Ive put a volt tester between the disconnected positive battery cable and the positive battery post...

Go to You Tube Video & see how to do a parasitic CURRENT
drain test

What you have done so far with a test light & volt meter is basically
doing nothing

You need an amp meter & a wiring diagram,then pull fuses one
at a time, to get to the circuit that causes the drain,then use the
prints to test that circuit for voltage drops

My 1988 chrysler new yorker is giving me a reading saying improper voltage what could be causing this? Ive tryd 2 different good batterys in it and i get a few miles down the road the battery light starts...

The warning light comes on if the alternator is not charging the battery. You can run for several miles on just battery voltage.
The alternator output would need to be checked when the warning light is on. Its very seldom a battery problem.

Shutting Down

Could be a relay, fuel pump, ignition coil, or several other things.
The charging system would only affect the condition of the battery.

Car keeps shutting off when i drive with the lights on i have already replaced the battery and alternator so whats wrong?

Have you checked to see if you have water in the oil? Could be a blown head gasket. check that then try your fuel filter.

Slow start, has new battery, clean injectors, loss of power on hot days (will shut down and coast to a stop)

Bad fuel pump,a possible, on the shutting off issue.
Loss of power, most likely a separate issue.
Need a clean fuel filter. It should last two or three years or 30,000 miles though.

My dodge intrepid wont charge

Check in the trunk and the glove box to be sure the lights are shutting off when they are closed, and be sure your interior lights go off when you shut the door. If it's nothing like that, it is probably your starter solenoid that is draining it after you shut it off, and it will need to be replaced.

95 Nissan Sentra shutting off when slowing down or at stoplight?

Make sure by having them tested. The battery and alternator. Autozone should do it for free. Basic tests is all they do. but it might show something.
