How much time does a buyer have to return a car to it's seller. I bought a used car from a private party 4 hours later the car engine seized.?

You cannot just return a car to the seller. There is no cooling off period on the sale of a vehicle. In your situation you can call the seller and ask for your money back, or ask the seller to repair the vehicle. If the seller refuses, your only recourse is to sue the seller in court. If you bought this car "AS IS" and there was no implied or written warranty then you will have to prove in court that the seller knew the engine was about to lock up. You must prove that the car was not serviceable on the day you bought it and the seller knew it. Get a written statement to that fact from 2 mechanics and that will strengthen your case. Otherwise you will probably loose on a car you bought "AS IS'.

Not unless the seller expressly stated something that turned out no to be true. For instance, if you asked the seller whether the transmission was good and he verbally guaranteed it, and you then found out it wasn't, you have recourse to ask for your money back. However, there's no 3-day return rule for vehicles, new or used. You struck a contract with the seller when you bought the car and it belongs to you.

Assuming you bought the car used, did you buy it from a dealer or from a private seller? If you bought it from a private seller, you're out of luck. If you bought it from the dealer, you may be entitled to Breach of Warranty compensation. If the car's mileage is under 125,000, the state of MA applies an 'Express Warranty,' of 30 days. If, inside that time, the car has the same malfunction 3 times or is in the shop more than ten days, the buyer is entitled to their money back (minus an allowance for any mileage they've put on the car since purchase.)

What is the time limit to return a used car?

What can you do if you bought a car but the seller was not the vehicle's owner and now you have to do the title transfer but you don't have the former owner's information?

It sounds like you bought a stolen car. You cannot register a Title if you do not have a Title signed over to you with the Registered Owner's signature. If this is your situation, you can take the SELLER to small claims court to return your money. But, in the meantime, take the car to the police to see if it is stolen. If it is and you're caught driving / in possession of it, YOU can be charged.
