Greetings

Im not really sure what I should say in this post aside from "Hi" so I guess I'll just ramble on about how lucky I just got with this car and why I am now able to join this forum.

Ive long known I needed a winter vehicle, living in saskatchewan and riding a Kawi Ninja just wasnt gonna work out, so... Two weeks ago I bought a.... Chevy Cobalt, and was immediately t-boned in an intersection by some kid who ran a red light outside my university.... we'll call it divine intervention. Long story short I ended up with a few thousand more than I paid for it, and a headache.

I found my new baby on a poster in the university, the owner was selling MY 2005 Chrysler 300C w/ 95,000 km, for 6000 dollars, all because he thought the engine was going to need to be torn apart, and it had a cracked windshield.

Sixteen Sparkplugs, two different cans of seafoam, an air filter, and an oil change later, it's running fine. I hope he feels stupid. I do however have a few questions which Id like to ask right off the hop.

One) I'm led to believe a catch can is a very good idea, and judging by how much of a difference the aerosol seafoam made, Im inclined to agree, can anyone recomend a good brand/website that would ship to Canada?

two) Why the **** is the headlight bulb for the passenger side low beam so hard to get at....

three) What are the three buttons labelled "I" through "III" by the sunroof controls for?

four) I know it needs a wheel alignment because this guy seems like the kind of guy who just didnt care about hi car and it pulls a little bit, but when i hit bumps with only the front drivers side tire i hear an almost metal on metal clank, I tried hitting them with the brakes on but it still happens so im led to believe its not a loose brake pad. Any other ideas? Indicative of a major problem?

Thank you in advance and thank you for having me
Brandon

welcome and congrats on the purchase!

pretty much everyone is going to tell you to go with the Billet Technology catch can...they're good. you won't have any complaints, besides the price and shipping maybe, but at the end of the day it's probably still worth it. I know DiabloSport makes one and so do a few other companies and I'm inclined to believe they all do about an equal job....

not much i can tell ya about the low beam bulb lol

the buttons are to program your garage door opener so you don't have to have an ugly clicker attached to your visor

i don't imagine it being indicative of anything major, but definitely get your mechanic to check it out...our front end's tend to go quickly, so you could be due for tie rods, endlinks, etc.

Welcome to the forum. Nice work on the engine maintenance!

I'd check the Billet Technology site for the catch can. They will ship to Canada.

That bulb location sucks but I don't have an answer for ya. The engineers at Chrysler and Daimler didn't consult with me before they finalized the design.

I, II & III are your Homelink buttons. So, most use it for the garage door opener. For those with a more extensive system they can open the garage door, turn on lights, etc...depending on what button they push.

That clunk is the front suspension, probably the tie rod ends or some other bushing. They tend to fail at around 60K miles so you are a bit beyond their useful life.

Again, welcome to the forum, Brandon.

Alright, Ill be sure to tell my mechnic to look at the tie rod ends and any and all bushings when he does the allignment, they really should either way but you know... dealers

Thank you for all your help, and for the headlight bulb I ended up just buying the bulb and taking it to the great canadian oil change, they are required to change your headlight bulbs if you ask, so i just supplied the oil, bulb, and laughed
