Mine had the same problem but it would start in the cold but would stall if i tried to move the car. and it would run sluggish hot.
once in a while i would get the check engine lite on would have a code that said burning too rich .
even when the light was not on it would go through alot more fuel than normal.
i tried changing all kinds of stuff o2 sensors, coolant temp sensor, throtle position sensor, air intake sensor, timing belt, and water pump just because its so expensive to change the timing belt and waterpump is run off of it.
compleate tune up roter cap to the plugs. and nothing worked.
the real problem that nobody but 1 mechanic knew just from the issues i told him.
lifter rockers too tight. and needed to be loosened and re torqued
it cost me just the price of 1 hour labor. about $90.00
he told me honda engins are the best but the lifters tighten up with time and must be re adjusted every 100k miles
mine had 120k when it started giving me cold weather problems and i only met the mechanic at 135k miles my second winter with the problem.
My CRV runs like a new car now!
Hope this information helps your problem..
