File suit in the appropriate state court in the county in which registered owner resides. If a judgment is granted it can be executed as a lien against the vehicle according to the laws of the judgment debtor's state. The lender is the primary lien holder if the vehicle has been used as collateral and a secondary lien can be enforced without the lender's release after the lending agreement has been completed.

If a cars title status says lien is it ok to purchase the car?

If the car has a lien on it, that means someone else has legal right to the vehicle probably for the balance of a car loan or due to non-payment of the car loan. If you purchase the car from its owner then you will be responsible for paying the lien or the vehicle may be repossessed by the lender or seized to pay the debt. You would need to obtain a valid release of the lien and follow the appropriate steps to have the lien released if you want to acquire a clear title.
