If a private seller misrepresented the condition of a car, can I get a refund?

I recently purchased a car from a private seller. His advertisement stated “runs great” and when I asked him if the car has had any major mechanical problems he said no. He also stated that the car was in good working order. The test drive did not reveal any problems. On the drive home the check engine light came on, and the electronics flickered on and off. I also noticed a knocking sound in the front right suspension. Do I have any legal remedy?
