Default Old vs new compatability?

Ok heres the deal. I had an old 94157 servo in my car years ago and never had problems. Now i am experiencing the dreaded gtb glitch.

Heres the kicker though.

If i turn the car on and walk away to a certain distance, the car will glitch. (not touching anything on the radio). The ESC will glitch along with the servo. If i unplug the servo, the glitching stops and the ESC is silent.

I cleaned the servo out with electric motor cleaner and still does it. I didnt have this problem with my Novak cyclone(also old)

My question is, is there a difference in voltage, or compatability with newer electronics? Is older servos/etc more prone to interference? I just put a new reciever in, tried 2 sets of crystals and checked all my connections.

It jsut seems wierd that when i unplug it everything stops. I feel i should buy a newer servo, but dont want to drop 100 dollars on a new servo if it wont fix the problem.
