We bought a car that was sold used with being told the car was in perfect condition. It was from a used car dealer. Within one week the transmission has gone out. Is there any recourse? Help! Thank you ***** *****

Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
Was the car sold "as is" without any type of warranty?
Did you test drive it prior to purchasing?
Did you have the car inspected prior to purchasing?
Do you have any proof the seller knew about the transmission and took steps to cover up any problems?
Have you had it examined by a mechanic to see if there is any evidence that problems were covered up?
