probably a good idea to check your plug wires and spark plugs if they have alot of miles on them i would just replace them, make sure you buy suppresion core wires and spark plugs with internal resistor usually indicated with an r in the part number, sometimes noise can be caused by alternator also.

Thanks alot Bejay for the good advice. I know my truck could use a good tuneup. Hopefully, that will take care of the buzz thingy, as well as the stalling at stops when it's cold out. Thanks again.

When you have the tune up done,tell the mechanic you want plugs that will not interfere with your radio signal.

Simply use OEM quality replacement parts which are designed with radio supression in mind and there's no problem

Unless you run solid core wires or racing wires, most aftermarket replacement wires provide radio supression .
