Hello, and welcome. I am a licensed attorney and happy to assist.
If you did not know the car was prone to overheating, you're not liable for the damage and need for a new engine. Likewise,the you knew, but the buyer never asked and you sold the car "as is," there is no liability. Only if you knowingly misrepresented the condition of the car would you be liable. Otherwise, it's the buyers responsibility and he took the car has he found it. A private seller is not responsible for providing any type of warranty. Absent intentional misrepresentation, the buyer has no recourse. You would win in court.
I hope this helps. If you need additional information or clarification, just let me know and I will continue to assist. If I have addressed your issue, please remember to leave positive feedback when prompted.
Good question. Not liable if, at the time you received the text, the sale was already complete.
It would help, but may not be necessary. It is the other parties responsibility and burden to prove that you knew and failed to disclose the information. That said, every bit of evidence in your favor helps.
Sorry for the typo.
