If I have a judgment against someone who has a vehicle with a lien can I file a second lien on this vehicle?
Yes, however the first lien holder gets paid first.

Legal advice can only come from a qualified attorney after having had an opportunity to become familiar with all of the fact specific circumstances of a particular legal matter, and then to apply or research the relevant law.
Typically, a vehicle with a lien on it is not worth much more than what is owed. Unless the owner has "non-exempt" equity in the vehicle (check your state's exemptions) you can't force a sale and since vehicles depreciate each year it's unlikely that you can ever recover anything.
