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.

How long to return car purchased in California from private owner?

There is no "lemon law" on used car sales from private parties. One generally buys a car in those conditions "as is" and there is no warranty or guarantees implied. The sale is final and the previous owner is under no obligation whatsoever to return your money or take the car back. You bought it ... and now anything that goes wrong with it is your responsibility. Next used car purchase, take a mechanic along to evaluate things before you put your cash down.

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.
