Could someone please help me with this sentence? I’m having problem with deciding if it’s it should be plural or singular.

I have a blue and red car.

or

I have a blue and red cars.

Which one is correct? I think it should be car and not cars as we are only talking about one unit.

In your example, you will want to use the singular, I believe you are trying to say

I have a blue car and a red car.
I have a blue and a red car.
I have two cars, one is red and one is blue

The article "a" distinguishes the two different cars.

However, your example

I have a blue and red car.

can mean you have one car and it has blue and red coloring.

I have blue and red cars.

means you have at least one blue car and at least one red car, but may have several of each.
