Question about Honda CR-V

What you have state I believe the problem most possible you have tight valves and cause low compression. I suggest to check whether the engine valves are the adjustable one, if yes give them the specified clearance from the manufacturer. If are the shim adjust,there you need a qualified mechanic for the job. If are the hydraulic system,then go for the engine oil flush,renew oil & filter, use the 10W40 Semi-synthetic engine oil with and engine oil additive for viscosity improvement .

These vehicles had issues with fuel pressure bleeding down when they sit for a period of time (like overnight). Nissan has issued a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) on this issue.
There is a check valve in the fuel pump assembly that holds fuel in the fuel line so that fuel is readily available to the engine. This valve fails and allows that fuel to slowly drain back to the tank. The reason you have to crank the engine for a long period of time is that the fuel has to be pumped from the tank all the way to the engine- may take 10 seconds or more.
Once you start the vehicle, fuel is available and since the drain back to the tank is slow, restarting after even a few hours will be much easier.
The repair involves replacing the fuel pump "module" assembly (it's a service kit that contains the check valve mentioned earlier). The fuel pump assembly is removed from the tank and disassembled and reassembled with several new parts. This is a dealer-only repair. Depending on your level of expertise, you may be able to perform the repair yourself, but will have to buy the parts from the dealer.

There is probably an air lock in the fueling system,you need to take the out the air lock in order to the engine start well and remain idle.

Also try the crv recall replacing the ignition mechanism where you insert the key. I have the same problem and was solved after reading about it in one blog.. it is free. It appears that it got shorted and will automatically kill the engine. after a while it will be cold again and you will be able to start the engine..

I also have made similar experience with my CRV-2007. I made the warning light disappear by taking off the battery power for some hours, starting up and driving a short tour with the car.
