Debt to income to determine how much debt you can service.

I have a big chunk of unused credit now that I am at about 40% credit utilization, but I don't have 0% APR for balance transfers on those limits so I have no interest in using it. I just wonder if a new card is going to be likely to give me a high limit knowing I have that other unused credit out there.
It says my credit history is only 5 yrs and 2 mos, yet the only derogatory marks left on my report go back to my college days (early-mid 90s). Porquoi? Only have one credit card, and it's a low limit account.
My report shows my paid off car loan and one late payment (it was a 60-month loan). Will that one missed payment in five years - which may have actually happened six or seven years ago - still be impacting my credit rating?
How do I find out what they are and what steps can I take to remove them from my report?
