Are you refering to the factory installed radio? If so, they are usually very good at AM recption, however, the distance to the station will make a difference to reception quality. Let's assume the staion is within 50 miles. You should under normal circumstances have good reception. Am is noisier than FM, but AM is sensitive to electrical interference like spark plug noise and other ignition system problems. I suggest making sure the engine is tuned up by a tech. Check plug wires, plugs and other ignition system components. I have had even 1 plug out of gap tolereance give me Am noise above normal. If aftermarket radio, the manufacturers do not design a good AM section and you will get marginal reception at best.

This was common in the old days, if you realy want to listen to the am radio and you cant stand the static reving sound of your engin you may need resiter spark plugs and wires.

yes hydrailic and no will not affect engine. Engine problem is just more noticed when transmission not engaged.
Squealing is probably pilot bearing--not a big deal.
Tapping--maybe lifters pumping up
Engine light--get car scanned and report trouble codes back to us.
Autozone and Advance, among other parts stores, offer free scans.

2002 ford ranger 4 cyl exhaust backfires after decelerating. Engine runs smooth at times when cool and raining engine runs ruff.


check Oxygen sensor and associated wires. if you have access to a scan tool watch the sensor signal. it should resemble a smooth wave at idle with engine warm, if its anything else you need a new sensor.
