Can stationary steering 15-20 times damage car

I have asked this question a few times before Can steering while car is stationary in drive cause any sort of damage to a car. I was messing around with my car one day and turned the steering all the way left and all the way right about 15-20 times. The steering wheel felt slightly tight to one side so I thought maybe there might be some air in the power steering pump, and I thought that would help get the air out. But since I did this, the car seems to be running rough. When I let off the accelerator the car does not coast and seems to lose speed rapidly. And just recently it has started to occassionally sputter on acceleration. When I accelerate for the first time I will hear a light thunk near where the cas pedal is but it wont do it again after that. Now the car seems like it takes about 2 seconds to go into gear from park. Could this wheel turning thing damaged a joint which in turn has started damaging my transmission? Could it damage anything which in turn could eventually damage the transmission? Would what I did be consiedered abuse to the vehicle, and void my warranty? Don't people steer stationary all the time, like when parellel parking and getting out of tight spaces? My car is a 2009 CRV. If anyone has any kind of information or advice they could give me, I would greatly appreciate it. I have taken the car to the dealer and they claim nothing is wrong but I think they are just ignoring these problems cause they don't want to fix it under warrantly These problems have greatly frustrated me, and I am afraid I did something to mess up my brand new car. If anyone has any advice or input I would greatly appreciate it.

When you say "runs rough" do you think the engine is running rough , or could it be more in steering/suspension ?
You say looses speed rapidly , I am wondering if it would do that if you tried to coast in Neutral ?
I am kind of thinking about an alignment problem.
Does the steering seem heavy/hard ?
Please get back to me , you seem to have a lot of problems , and I have a lot of questions. Will try to work out an answer.
I don't think you have damaged the trans or axles , but maybe steering rack or pump , or tie rods. May also have a vacuum leak causing some problems.

Stationary steering doesn't harm your vehicle, but putting the power steering stop to stop on each side can cause damage to the pump, which runs off of the engine belt. The first thing I would do is to get the power steering pump and steering rack inspected by a shop that will honor your warranty.

P.S. - This shouldn't void your warranty, it's a common mistake.

Can stationary steering damage a brand new car?


Steering it stationary while running wont cause damage. Just take it to the dealer and tell them the problems your having, no need to mention the steering thing.

The power steering pump pumps fluid through the power steering rack or gear box assembly. when you move the steering wheel the fluids pressure helps you to turn the wheel by puhing on one side of the rack or the other. You can turn the wheel asmany times as you want with it stationary and nothing will happen.

Can stationary steering damage a brand new car


The steering and transmission are not connected in anyway. Turning the steering wheel with the car running, will not damage anything but the tires if you do it long enough. Sounds like something coincedental is going on, did you try another dealer? This time leave out the fact that this started to happen after turning the steering wheel while stationary. Just explain the problem the car is having. Maybe go for a test drive with someone, like a shop foreman, service advisor, or a technician so they can hear the thunk noise. Let me know if that helps.
