Rough morning idle

Recently bought at hq ute, and it's having trouble holding idle when cold, there's also alot of moisture coming out the tail pipe.
We heard about the seal on the petrol cap on some cars causing water to get in the tank and cause this exact problem.... Other solutions, air filter? or carby problem...
Any ideas before we pull it apart entirely?

Vibration

I have a vibration in my ute that is getting worse, you can see the t-bar, steering wheel and mirrors all shaking as soon as you take off. I can't go over 80kmph without it getting really bad, it seems to be affected by road speed, not engine revs. I just changed the front and rear uni joints today and I've changed the rear gearbox mount, but it made no difference.

Oil leak - help needed

Hi all - am in need of some help. I have a bit of an oil leak, spots left on the ground after parking, there's also a more creamy 'liquid' in both consistency and colour. What could this be?. lubrication of some sort(????). The car also smokes a fair bit from under the hood, very noticeable at night when the headlights are on. Could this be a result of the leaking onto the trans or something??? I havent had the car for long, so am still getting used to its characteristics. Are these leaks etc. just part and parcel???????

cooling system worries

Hi all

Having a few problems with my cooling system at the moment. Radiator is overflowing every so often, i notice it when i've stopped and i get out. Its not a major overflow, but its happened about 3 times now. A while back i topped it up, it needed a little under a litre of coolant to bring it back to full. After that, i had another overflow, and when it had cooled down i checked the water level, which was now much higher than usual, hence the overflow. I checked it this morning and it's back to being a little low. i have noticed when it's low that there are a few bits of scale here and there. i figure they could be blocking up passages and maybe causing the problem.

HZ Temp and Fuel

I am having probs with hte fuel and temp gauges dropping out from time to time. This usually lasts a week or so then both come back on line. Test lamp shows all appears well. Can anyone give us some advice or recommend and further fault finding exercises.I thought of removing it and getting it tested... How does the assembly wire out to the main feed and what would cause both to drop out if the line and power appear fine????????? Suggestions would help.

Ignition Lamp Remains On

Hi guys, just wondering if anyone knows the problem with my VC. The ignition lamp remains on after the car has started and nothing I have done seems to help. I replaced the alternator belt and that fixed the problem for about a week but then it came back. It doesn't seem to effect the running of the car at all but is annoying and I am hoping it's nothing major. I've got a feeling it's linked with the alternator as the alternator doesn't seem to be generating enough power, ie. if headlights are on and I indicate then the length of time between indicator flashes is very long compared with during the day when headlights are turned off.
