Both cv axles - live in town? lots of sharp corners. beats the hell out of the outer cv joints, not to mention starts/stops don't do the inner joints any good.
Starter - live in town? lots of short trips, more hits on the starter. bad maintenance? longer hits on the starter.
Water pump - Oklahoma? Hotter engine, water pump gets more of a "work out". Change/flush the coolant regularly? No? Another hit for the water pump.
Alternator - Do a lot of night driving? Lot of engine starting?
Yes to any of these? Maybe you're one of the few that puts more of these conditions on your vehicle than the rest. Who knows.
If one of my vehicles had that many parts replaced before 100k miles, I wouldn't think twice about it. Now 50K or 75K, I might start to worry.
Jist of the story...Each one of those parts is a 'wear out' item. Obviously more 'wear-able' than tires, but not as 'wear-able' than, say, piston rings.
Judging from your old posts, you bought the car used (could be wrong, but that's what it looks like).
At the same time, you bought the maintenance of the person that owned it before you.
Doesn't matter if it's got 100K or 100 miles on it. If that 100 miles was only on the drag strip, 1/8 mile at a time, and it never had an oil change, it's probably beat.
99% of the questions that are "STRANGE
" have a dirt simple answer...usually answered by a dirt simple search.
Is it just me, or does the majority overlook the obvious?
Somebody ate a whole bag of dumbass for breakfast.
Why do people continue to run a vehicle when a warning light comes on or starts flashing? Isn't that a clue that something is wrong and you probably should NOT drive it?
Is this whole car driving thing really freekin' brain surgery?
Here's something new for the crowd/clowns...
