I don't have a listing for that code number. If necessary, I'll try to find a Chrysler service manual to find out what it means.

What kind of "idle problem" are you having? Was the battery recently disconnected or run dead?

The AC drain tube is always on the engine-side of the firewall on the passenger side. Look for a 4" rubber hose with a 90 degree bend in it hanging down.

Rough running is typical of a misfire. How long since the spark plugs and wires were replaced?

The first thing I would suspect is a plug wire that didn't get fully-seated. That will lead to arcing between the terminal and the spark plug, and eventually the wire will burn back far enough to cause a misfire. Don't overlook the distributor cap and rotor. Check for carbon-tracking, cracks, and moisture.

Normally misfires will be detected by the Engine Computer which will set a diagnostic fault code specifying which cylinder is at fault. When no code is set, consider other causes of harshness such as a collapsed rubber isolator in an engine mount.

P0305 - Cylinder 5 Misfire Detected

Same as any other misfire. Gotta have consistent spark, fuel, compression, valves opening fully and not leaking.
