Re: [DML] Terrible AM reception...

  I have some of the same problems, but I always just attribute it to my windshield antenna and original Craig.  With that said, if you can hear the engine through your radio, it is likely some poorly shielded ignition component.  If you have recently performed a tuneup, you might be as good as you can get in terms of shielding (short of doing some strange work to your car.
  It is more likely that it is simply picking up more interference at night because of a weak AM signal.  Due to changes in the atmosphere at night, most large AM frequency broadcasts are trimmed back at night time to avoid "stepping on" the same frequency in another market.  
  Granted, none of this tells you how to fix the problem.  I think the only answer is a good antenna, and a better radio.  Other than that, you are essentially at the mercy of the providers.  I've always had this problem in my DeLorean, but my Cadillac's more modern radio performs *much* better.

Seriously. FM reception is fine 24/7. AM reception is great in the
morning, slowly degrades in the afternoon, and is useless at night.
