My car has an aux port in the stereo but my old ipod touches headphone jack doesn't work what so ever.

I can use the ipod on a dock through the 30 pin connector so I know this part works, I was wondering what could I use to do 30pin -> 3.5mm to plug into my car?

Normally you'd just use a 3.5mm male to male aux cable and plug it into the ipod port but that's broken so I need a different solution.

Yes, you'll have to find a cable that is 30-pin to 3.5mm or you could use a dock that has it like the Apple iPod Dock. Something like this would work well: http://www.sendstation.com/us/products/pocketdock/lineout-usb.html
Thanks for the quick response. Glad to hear it's possible.

I'll look for something similar to that. That's a little more stuff than I need and costs $30 which is about the value of this old thing hahaha...

I currently use a dock in the house but in the car I can't do that.

How about this?:

I assume the quality is very poor but I'd be wiling to risk it for $6.

Your link is broken.
Not sure why that is. Just clicked it and it works for me.

I just ordered a 30 pin male to usb and 3.5mm for $4 on ebay... chances are it won't last long but it's something :)

Thanks for making me aware these existed.
