Engine noise on President Grant 2

I have a President Grant 2 (not premium) fitted into my Diesel Isuzu D-Max However when on FM or AM when I rev the engine I get a lot of engine noise coming through the radio. On SSB this does not happen. The antenna is roof mounted and has a very good ground plane. I have tried the Midland 78 and Thunderpole TTi and these do not have any problems. Any suggestions? advice please.

Many thanks

Hi Mike
how is the power wired up?
direct to batteries and cables routed away from alternator?
is the screen\braid of coax properly grounded and is it quality shielded coax?

I assume the problem is when engine on,right?
