There is a bit of confusing concerning the terminology used in the question. A judgment writ is issued to the plaintiff if the lawsuit is won. The judgment can then be executed pursuant to state statutes. The process of filing a lawsuit can begin by contacting the clerk or the administrator of the court of jurisdiction or by retaining legal representation.

What is the difference between an agreed judgment and default judgment and will both have equal impact on credit ratings?

There's no difference in how the judgment is entered on a credit report. An agreed judgment indicates the debtor(s) appeared in court but did not have a valid defense as to why the debt was not owed, therefore a judgment was entered against him or her. A default judgment indicates the debtor(s) did not appear in court thereby forfeiting the right to defend the suit, resulting in a default judgment being entered in favor of the plaintiff. The execution procedure of either type judgment is also the same.

If you are owed 150K on a promissory note and the other party is refusing to pay how can you collect?

The creditor(lender) will more than likely have to file a lawsuit against the debtor (borrower) to recover monies owed. If the creditor wins the suit a judgment will be entered against the debtor. The judgment can be executed according to state laws against any nonexempt property belonging to the debtor. The judgment holder should use caution when seizing property, as they can be penalized for incumbering exempted property of the debtor or possibly jointly owned property. The safe and expedient method of enforcing a judgment is by wage garnishment.

Can a cosigner repossess the car if other party is unable to pay?

Co signer does not have the right of subrogation. ( the power to recoup the losses). His agreement is only with the lender who will demand payment in case the principal borrower fails to pay. He has to honour the agreement. If he pays to the lender, he can have a legal remedy through court and can repossess the vehicle only if the court orders so. ( This is on an assumption that there is no agreement entered into between the principal borrower and the cosigner. Even if there is an agreement it can be enforced through a court only.)
