Re: Can you damage the power steering by......
I would have though it unlikely to damage it by turning the wheel with the engine off, but if it feels "off" for safety's sake I would be tempted to let a mechanic give it a once over.
Having said that I used to run around in an ancient 400,000 mile Tranny van with a knackered power steering pump, and whilst it was heavy to steer it never caused me a problem.
