Is it okay to put the car in neutral while it is going 50-60 mph, restart and put back in drive?
You can probably do that but I recommend getting to the root of the problem. From your description, it sounds like an electrical circuit breaker in the engine is being tripped. This may be a problem with the circuit breaker itself or some other electrical problem (overloading, short circuit, etc.) triggering it.

#41 of 92 1997 Honda CRV stalling when warm.
May 08, 2008 (12:18 pm)
I have a 1997 honda crv with 195,000 miles on it. The car recently has been giving me problems. When the car is driven for a while and it warms up it stalls. The first time this happened, the car started right back up, however the last three times it happened, the car just cranks. Then when the car cools down it starts. I have had the recall done on the ignition switch at 145,000. I had similar stalling problems, but it always started right back up. This time it usually takes 30 min to start up again. I never have had the fuel filter replaced because the dealer told me that honda does not recommend it. The cap and rotor were changed 25000 miles ago. I am wondering if it could be a faulty coil or another ignition switch or the fuel pump? Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks, Marc

MY CRV WILL NOT IDLE WHEN PUT IN DRIVE OR IN PARK. REPLACED THE IAC VALVE, WATER TEMP SENSOR, THERMAL VALVE AND MAP SENSOR. TRIED TO ADJUST TIMING, IDLE AND RESET COMPUTER WITH FUSE 7A. WITHOUT RESULTS. I HAVE POSTED RECENTLY WITHOUT BEING ABLE TO FIND THE ANSWER ON THIS WEB IN SPITE OF BEING NOTIFIED BY E-MAIL THAT AN ANSWER IS AVAILABLE. NEED BETTER WEB AND LINK ICONS.

B-series engine in the CR-V needs to have the valve lash adjusted every 30,000 miles. If they are not adjusted, the valves will tighten and will eventually press the valve seat into the head and will burn the valves.
If you are under 90,000 miles, you may get Honda to pay for half or all of the $3500 repair. If you are over 90,000 miles, the valves should have been adjusted at least once as per owner's manual, or 3 times as per shop manual. Honda made a mistake in the Owner's manual by stating 90,000 mile interval. And as result of that, they will pay for repairs associated with the mistake, if the vehicle is under 90,000 miles. If the vehicle is over 90,000, then it was the owner's responsibility to ajust the valve lash at 90,000 miles.

What is the colour of the spark is it blue or orange? anything done before this happened? Is the spring for the coil still there?

the spark is orange in color, and yes the spring for the coil is still there, it is not my car so im not 100% sure if anything has been done but i do know that the car was running fine before this problem, i was told that it was running good then all of a sudden started to spudder and then stalled and and it hasnt started since. the book i have says to test the resistance between teminals 1 and 8 on the connector coming from the distributor, it says there sould be between 350 to 700 ohms and im only getting 1 ohm but im not sure if i am testing it right cause the book is not very clear on its explanation. some more help would be great.
