You will need to ask the court for "supplemental proceedings," a "judgment debtor examination," or something to that effect (the exact terminology varies state to state--the clerk will know what you are talking about and give you the correct form). You must pay a fee and have the judgment debtor served with your request. Then, the clerk will set a time where the judgment debtor is required to come to court and answer questions regarding his or her assets, such as this car, and whether it is paid for. I suggest the use of an attorney in this matter--look in the phonebook for lawyers who give "free consultations."

If i have a case against someone in small claims court that was dismissed with prejudice could i file i case in civil court?

No. Dismissed with prejudice means the case has already been adjudicated, and that res judicata would prohibit bringing the case again. Furthermore, small claims court is a level of civil court that has a lower monetary jurisdiction than other levels. The alternative to civil court is criminal court, and small claims cases are not, by their nature, criminal matters.
