Do you have matching tires on all 4? Follow #1s advice and tell us the rest of the story , for more help.
Coolant at proper level? Does your CR-V have manual or 'auto' climate controls? Check engine light on? Do you hear any kind of faint 'clicking' from under the dash , when changing the temperature?..Just some questions to start with , may narrow down the problem area.
Possible pad sensors or low fluid , both require visual check to verify. May be other causes also. Should have shop qualified to service BMW check it out.
Any history of check engine light , prior to it finally not running?
ANY aftermarket items( alarm/security , remote start or radio) installed?
If it's not leaking oil and you're using 5w20 oil , then Honda DOES consider that an acceptable amount. If you go to a dealer ask them about HONDAS' 'oil consumption test' It's on "ISIS' -(under 'job aids' (Honda website) As far as the P0341 (incorrect cam phase) is due to worn timing chain. Need to replace the chain , all guides and tensioner for the job to be done correctly.ABOUT 4.5 Hrs. flat-rate , but the car should sit overnight to let the chain cover sealant cure properly to avoid leaks later on.As far as the temp. running 'too hot' if your guage is consistent , then I wouldn't worry. Just my opinion , but you might ask around about a better Honda dealer , if the comments you posted were referencing what a dealer tech. told you..........ALSO my opinion...IF the car has been otherwise well-kept , then I think the repairs are worth it , as long as you get a tech that cares about the quality of his work.
Check valves for cyl #4
TEMP. test....Inertia switch visual inspection can be decieving! Unplug and check for continuity. Also key on , temp. jump 2 pin connector and see if fuel pump energizes. I've had some inertia switches that were only 'partially' off , (like a circuit breaker at home where the switch is not quite all the way off, and in order to reset it you must move it all the way off before trying to reset). Try a good 'firm smack with a rubber mallet to 'trip' it and after you hear it 'pop' , then push the button back in until you hear it click.you should definitely hear a click , or it probably hasn't reset.
Possibly through the information display menu.Electronic level sensor , likely , not dipstick. A dipstick would be to low-tech and easy!
V6 or 2.4L?, Common on V6 for front and side mounts to fail.Don't see as many on the 4cyl.....No MIL on , right?
