I assume not a main dealer or one of the national "car supermarket" sites. Was it a backstreet dealer?
The dealer can't just sell you a load of junk and then wash their hands of it, no matter what they say and no matter whether the car is brand new or 10 years old. It has to be fit for purpose and as described, by law.

You can also find details of motors online before you actually buy them. More info from Citizens Advice in the following link -
You can also contact Citizens Advice to ask them what you need to do, if you can't get any help elsewhere.
PS Are there any dealers near you where you can physically go and have a look at a car and perhaps give it a test drive? I hate to say it but distance buying just doesn't seem to be working out very well for you.
Also, if there is anyone not to have faith in, it's a used car dealer. Sad but true. You have to ensure that you double check all the facts and figures yourself.
