How can I buy stock without a broker?

All I want to do is invest a couple hundred dollars on a few different types of stock to hold onto for years. I don't want to play the market, diversify my portfolio on a weekly basis or anything like that. I just want a couple shares of a few different companies that I can buy and forget about while they slowly build in an account. How do I go about buying them? Do I HAVE to get an account with ETrade or some similar site? Don't want to go through a broker... help a beginner please?

Wrong tire size?

P designates a tire for a passenger car, 225 is the width of the tire in mm, 75 is the ratio of sidewall height to the width (eg thesidewalls are 225*0.75=168.75 mm tall), R is the type of tire (radial), and 16 is the diameter of the tire in inches. Customizing the tires gives you different performance results.

If you want your car to act according to how the manufacturer specified, go back to the stock tires. However, your current tires have a larger diameter than the stock, which means your rims are also larger than stock; you would probably have to replace the rims as well, which can be expensive.

I would stick with your new sizes. Different sized tires will not harm your vehicle in any way. I would also recommend going to a store that offers lifetime warranties like Les Schwab; they are invested in insuring that that everything is fitting correctly so they don't have to refund you anything.

97 audi A6 Quattro immobilized - just died in traffic - doesn't make a sound when you turn the key- all lights work so it's not battery. Starter replaced last year. Recent indicator light: brake light -...

A few things to note:
1. Just because the lights come on doesn't mean that there is enough power to start the car. It could still be a battery issue, or the alternator, but not likely from what you describe.

2. Have the OBD system scanned with a VAG-COM and see what errors show up. Most auto parts stores (like autozone) will scan it for free, or you can purchase one (it's a good investment) at for a couple hundred dollars.

How often do u have to change your tranmission oil and engine oil, and which type is recomended( toyota corolla 06)

its in the owners manual about suggested change times but as a mechanic of 27 years i have seen hundreds of failures due to dirty trans fluid. having it changed yearly is a good investment considering a new or used transmission runs about $1200.00 to$ 2800.00.

I need a wiring diagram for a 1989 Ford Escort Cabriolet as the fuses for the main beam keep blowing, also i have no reversing lights

You will have to ask a repair shop with a data base,
such as ALLDATA,Motor,Mitchell,etc to print
what you need for ,say free or a couple dollars

You just don't find or get anything free on the internet
That isn't saying someone won't find something &
try to be helpful,but I wouldn't wait & expect that.

There a two forms of vehicle info

The original factory manuals I buy, for all
my vehicles at several hundred dollars each

Then there is a local repair shop ALLDATA
version ,that covers 40 years of everything
for all vehicles. They pay big bucks each year
for that

I have subaru b4 legacy 1999 with twin turbo from Japan and I would like to increase the torque and speed. Where do I start.

hi i would invest in an electronic boost controller, they remove the dead spot in the revs before the big turbo winds in, they are worth a few hundred dollars but are well worth the money. You also have the option of turning up the boost safely a few psi with these but you will love the difference without the dead spot it will seem like a new car to drive. If you do that and want more still i would get a turbo upgrade, ecu upgrade, fuel pump upgrade etc do all that you can before going with the expensive motor rebuild

2005 toyota camry lost transmission at 45,000 miles and 6 mo. out of warranty. How much should a new transmission cost? Shouldn't Toyota cover this at such an early date

With just 45,000 miles, it shouldn't of went out this early. It just depends where you buy them and if you buy them new or used. You can get used ones for a few hundred dollars. A new one is going to be around 1000 I would say. Like I said, it may be a little more or a little less. Everybody charges different prices. I would call and make sure there is not a recall on the tranny for that year. It can't hurt.

Need a new motor

On a nine year old car, get a used one for a few hundred dollars from a junkyard and pay a shop to put it in. You can spend a couple thousand for a rebuilt/exchange engine if you think the car is worth it. I would pay someone to put it in however.

How much for a window switch for 1999 toyota land cruiser, could $20 on ebay be right? what about $490 from body shop? thank you, m

I think you are suffering from the Cadillac syndrome; gee, if they can afford a (insert any high end name here) we can charge whatever we want for a repair.
If you have found the switch for $20, that probably isn't too bad although Toyota paid $1.50 each. Most of the vehicles I've seen with panel mounted switches will pry out without damage and the switches may also be only pressed into their seat. Also, I venture that the electrical connections are of the 'push-on, pull off' type.

Bent valves 2000 Ford Escort ZX2

a couple bent valves shouldnt be more then a few hundred dollars to have replacedand can be fixed yes, but also the vehicle has to have another timing chain ooput on and be retimed this will probably be a total cost of somewhere in the $800 dollar range (this is only an estimate!!) to replace your entire engine would cost substantially more and in all realit i would try to sell the opother vehicle for parts, trade in, or as a whole and buy another vehicle before i invested the money into a new engine for this particular car

Hello my fuel pump pressure, maybe weak, if so how do i fix the problem. I have a 1985 Mercedes-Benz 190D. Please, if someone can give me some advise what to do. Thank You

I just had the same problem with my Chevy S10 Pickup. I changed my fuel pump myself, and that solved the problem. Fuel pumps can range in price, depending on if the sending unit is sold with the pump or without. If it is something you can do yourself, I would recommend it. You will save yourself a lot of money, otherwise look at spending about three to four hundred dollars for a mechanic to do it. It is pretty simple, and you SHOULD buy a mechanics book for your car, which you would find at any auto parts store. You may need to buy a few tools, but that cost is pretty low.
Three years ago, I had a mechanic replace my pump. It cost me 450 dollars, not including the cost of the pump.
I just replaced it again a couple of weeks ago. The pump was $240, tools were $40. So, that is why I would recommend you do it yourself if you need to save money.
