After changing the CAT and O2 sensor, I went back to get it reinspected and it passed in March. Sorry I forgot to put that in.

My first thought is that the symptoms are fuel related.
Check the fuel pressure 30 to 37 psi

I help a friend with a '94 Accord last June with this same issue. We went out on the highway and the Cruise control held perfectly but the speedometer was dead. He found that "Combination Gauge" at a local junkyard and in no time at all, I had it replaced.
#1800 of 1849 '94 Accord front disc brakes
Apr 24, 2012 (8:34 am)
Last fall, I helped my friend with the '94 Accord replace his front brakes. He had metal on metal on the passenger side, so there was a rotor issue as well but he chose to just replace the pads and said that he'd replace the rotors later. He called me the other night and asked if I would help do this now. I noticed that when we pulled the calipers off(2 piece), there are about 5 or 6 bolts in a ring around the center of the rotor. Is this what holds the rotor on? I'm used to rotors coming off as soon as the caliper comes off.
Also, my friend says that while this car runs good, the engine idles high right after he starts up and if he tried to drive right away, it is kind of sluggish. I'm wondering if there may be a emissions hose loose or worn. I told him I'd clean the throttle body out when I do the rotors to see if this might help. The car does have a lot of miles on it, I know the transmission was replaced some months ago with a used one, but I think he said the motor is original. Other than these few things, the car runs well and gets terrific gas mileage. Let me know about the rotor retainer and what you think the high idle on startup might be. Thanks and have a great day!

Thanks so much, Omarr, for this heads up with these brakes. WHY in God's name would they have to design something like this is beyond me other than most folks won't have access to the special tools needed and take the car in for the $500 brake job! And on a car like my friend Mario's, it'd make sense to replace the wheel bearings due to the high mileage(180K+). I may have to tell him that he's gonna have to take it elsewhere because I really don't have access to a press, although I do have a friend who has one in his small machine shop about a block away from me. This would mean that Mario is going to need to let me bring the car here to my home and commit to not just replacing the rotors, but the bearings as well. I'll get prices for those items sometime today.
It is good that there is a place like this where we can come and ask these really important questions. So many of us need to do as many of these repairs ourselves as there is no other option. Thanks again, Omarr, and may God Bless!!

Does anyone know if "auburn63" is still out there? I would like to thank this person for his/her solution on what I thought was torgue converter shudder. I tried the suggestion given and the engine smoothed out like the problem was not there. I found out all 4 ports were clogged. Now they are all cleaned and the engine is doing well. It has 237k miles and doesn't burn a drop of oil. Thanks again to "auburn63".

I would not have a problem with not changing the bearings if you do not abuse them (beat on them) when removing the rotor.
The bearings are probably still okay. they are double row thrust bearings and the bearings will separate when you try to press them off. If you were normally changing standard rotors, you would not change the bearings.Your preference only.

Most people don't have access to a press, however there is another way with these Accord wheel bearings.
The wheel bearings have "ears" on them with threaded holes. This is how the bearing is mounted to the hub. You have to remove the bearing to remove the rotor.
Go to a hardware store (Ace Hardware had the bolts I needed), and purchase some 10mm X 100mm (I think, check your bolt diameter), grade 8 bolts. They need to be about 100mm long to stick up enough. Thread these high-quality bolts into the bearing, and then in a cross-hatch pattern, use a small sledge hammer to "rock" the bearing out of its bore. My bearings were rusted in place, but if you are careful and patient you can get the bearings out in your driveway (no press is needed). Make sure to alternate side-to-side, up-and down to rotate the bearings out of their bore. Should take less than 5 minutes.
It's mostly rust that is holding the bearing in the bore.
When you reassemble, clean out the rust from the bearing bore; no press is required to reassemble. I put some grease in the bore to keep the rust level down. Torque the bolts down.
These cartridge bearings are very reliable - you should be able to get 300k+miles out of them before re-greasing.
