First, you should call the person that you bought the car from if you haven't already. Just tell them what happened and you want your money back and you'll give the car back, end of deal. If they aren't willing to do this, which I think most people will be, then you'll have to seek further as to what to do.

No, but if you bought them with a warranty you can get them repaired. If you bought them, "AS IS" then you are stuck.Added:Many states have a 500 mile, 10, or 30 day warranty rule on used cars. After that you are on your own unless the cars are under warranty.

What to do if you purchased a vehicle from a private owner and the vehicle breaks down within one week?

Nothing unless you have a written agreement that any problems that occur within the first however long will be fixed by the seller. Normally if a person buys a car from a private owner they should get a mechanic to make sure everything checks out fine, because cars purchased from a private owner is usually not under warranty.

I just bought a used car 3 weeks ago it broke down and will not start i don't want it anymore and i have no warranty what do i do?

If you don't want it anymore then you can try re-selling it. A private sale is always "as-in" unless you have an agreement so you're probably going to have to cut your losses and be more careful next time.
