Could be coolant leaking into a cylinder with a head gasket leak.

Sounds like issues with erratic valve timing, the 'vtec' not working as
planned. It's hydraulically actuated I believe so perhaps change your oil?
Maybe it's absorbed a bunch of moisture causing (oddly enough)
'hydraulic-ing'.

Or it could be ignition timing out of whack - or mixture richness ...

Times like these I'm pleased my 1985 Honda is carburetted and simple.

I've seen this happen with my daughters 05 Accord. Oil change did the trick
(as stated above). When was the last oil change?

Ditto 2005 CR-V. There is an oil pressure/volume-triggered valve that
becomes clogged and limits VTEC function.
