Do not start the vehicle, or do not turn the radio on when it is running. Only kidding. Try replacing the plug wires. This is typically what causes the problems you are having. You might also make sure that the radio antenna is tight, and properly grounded to the vehicle. If the problem is only with AM listening, it is unfortunately typically the result of the noisy AM, and the weak stations making the radio raise its gain. FM is typically quieter, and easier to hear due to their relatively higher transmitted power. Ray
