Your obligation to repay the loan is based on the promissory note you signed, and has nothing to do with a lien on the vehicle. Without a lien on the vehicle, the lender will be unable to repossess the vehicle, but they can still collect on the debt. They can also impose substantial penalties. Without a vehicle lien as collateral, most lenders will convert your auto loan into a signature loan at an interest rate of 12% or higher.

Can I put a lien on a car title I'm selling if the buyer is making payments to you?

You can if you listed yourself as the lien holder of the car at the time you transferred the title to the person making payments. If you did not do this at the time you transferred them the title, you can not legally do anything.

Car not paid for but i have car title?

You have the title, but I bet on that title the lender you own money to is listed as the lien holder. He can repossess the car at any time if you miss payments.

If I have a car loan with sister we are both on the title as owners can she take your car and sell it can you file a civil suit to remove her name since i am making the payments?

Keyword here is someone is still making payments, right? If someone is making payments then the owner of the car is the lending agency, not either of the two 'registered' owners. If this be the case, nobody can sell this car without the written authorization of the lending agency. Doubtful that either party could sell the car without having clear title to it ... the actual legal ownership document without the lien holder information. The only way to remove the other party from the title is for both parties to go to the local motor vehicle office and handle this matter.

It would be the previous owner's loss.

The title holder has no job license or insurance as cosigner you are making payments what can you do to get possession of the car?

IF you are NOT on the TITLE, contact the lender, explain the deal and ask them to repo for you, take the buyer OFF the loan and let you take possession. That will NOT get the payments off you but will give you room to work. You are not the first person to have the problem and most lenders will ways to solve it.

I would insure any car that I was driving or making payments on. If you are on the title then you are an owner.

You are selling your motorcycle to a guy making payments How do you release yourself of liability with out signing over the title?

Check with the Secretary of State in your area to confirm you can be the lien holder for the vehicle. Assuming you can, simply sell the vehicle to the buyer, and list yourself as the lien holder on the title. It would be a good idea to utilize a contract to outline payments and if you require the buyer to maintain insurance on the bike until the lien is satisfied. Hope this helps.
