Identifying part of speech?
In the sentence I haven't ever really found a car that I've liked. What would found be? Would it be a verb or could it be an adjective?

'Found' is a verb. It is what you did, or didn't 'find.' It is an action, therefore a verb.

In this example, found is the verb.

Are you the person who wasn't sure whether 'life' was a noun or an adjective? Any more of these absurd questions and we'll assume you're a troll. It is inconceivable that you could have good enough English to compose the question but not know what a verb was.
If your questions are in any way genuine, I recommend a quick glance at ANY beginner's English grammar book before you make yourself look even more ridiculous.

No, darling, it could not possibly be an adjective. What noun would it be modifying? Please use your brain.

"Found" is the past participle of "find." It's part of the present perfect tense: "have [not] found."

It’s a verb, of course.

In that usage, found is a verb; it is the past tense and past participle of the verb FIND

Found, in this case, is a verb.
