In order to collect on the lien, you will need to see a real estate attorney and have the lien foreclosed.

See the phone book for real estate attorneys who give "free consultations."

If a person inherits a car that has a lien against it for an auto loan is that person responible for repaying the outstanding amount or can the lien holder only go after the deceased's estate?

If you wish to keep the car then you will need to pay the lien on it. The lien takes priority over your inheritance. If the decedent purchased a car and had to finance it then the lender owns the car until the loan is paid. Therefore the car was not owned by the decedent and could not have been gifted to you in the will.
