I've replaced the air filter, the fuel pressure regulator, cleaned the MAF sensor, and cleaned something else (forget).
How did you manage to clean the MAF?There is no MAF on your CR-V.Anyway,start by checking the coolant sensor,if it reads correctly.It is the easy to do that first thing in the morning(you need the scanner ) and read the difference between IAT and ECT sensors.They should be within 2 degrees Celcius I think.Does your tune is up to date?If the coil,wires ,cap,rotor,spark plugs aren't delivering fire properly it might run reach.Check also the MAP sensor for proper readings.Oxygen sensor which is shorted to power could give that code also.But again scanner would tell you all the details.
