If the owner told you that he changed the fuel filter, then they're responsible. They have an obligation, when doing work, to perform it correctly. Also, if they won't provide you with the contract or bill of sale so you can register the vehicle, you can actually sue for a full refund. Even with as-is sales, a car has no value to you unless you can register and title it in your name. If they refuse to provide the documentation so you can do that, the sale fails. You can return the car and get all your money back in that scenario.
