Though I'm no scientist, I would imagine the rubber bits are degrading as soon as they are exposed to the environment. In. The case of the power steering pump, the environment includes automatic transmission fluid. I'd bet the metal parts of the pump are near perfect, but all the little rubber o-rings (and hoses, belts, and tires) are getting older and drying out or degarding. Fluids too (i'll bet you've changed the oil more than once even though there's only 3700 miles on it).
