Purchased of a used car from private owner

I purchased a 1994 Ford Taraus for 1,350.00 from a private owner. After 4 days of having this car, it broke down. Its engine problems possible a new motor. I called the previous owner and told him about the car. He made a statement that he was not responsible for that. I realize that buying a used car is considered as a as is purchase. But doesn't the previous owner have some liablity in this. I am not sure the previous owner knew of this car's problem or not. Should he return my money or get it repaired. He did bring a mechanic over to look at the car, but he has not said anything about paying for the repairs. What can I do? Thank you
