#119 of 119 2007 CR-V Engine, Electrical Problems

Hi. I live in the Caribbean so information sharing among owners isn't as cool as it appears to be on here. Kudos to you. Anyway, here's my story....
I bought a brand new 2007 CR-V (right hand drive) and months after buying it, I now know that the MICU Fuse Box faultered. The dealer here did not have the diagnostic tool at the time, so when they finally got it in 2011 (4 years after I bought it and 3 years out of warranty), I got the diagnosis and had to pay a lot of money to rectify that problem.
Recently, the vehicle developed engine problem but I think it was incorrectly diagnosed. One day I was driving and upon acceleration I heard what was a loud spinning flapping fan noise. I stopped immediately and after 5 months of agony from the dealer, I was slapped with a $13K bill to replace a cylinder head. I was told at that time that metal shavings were found in the Oil Pan and the dealer pointed to a faulted valve seat.
Last week, the vehicle developed the same exact noise but this time after pulling over, oil traces were seen on the road and more metal shavings in the Oil Pan. This time, one hole and a large crack was in the Oil Pan. And a huge chunk was missing off of the Oil Pump.
I have a feeling that this recent occurrence is related to the 2011 ordeal. I have a full blog of the chronological order of events relating to my jeep (with photos) and would really appreciate if anyone could read it and let me know your thoughts and suggestions for resolution. Here's my blog.
Let me know please. Thanks much.
