That's a great point. Still, this truck appears to have had full service about 6 or 7 weeks before the apparent replacements. Here's how it looked in carfax
04/02/2007 30,804 miles
-Automatic transmission checked
-Differential/axle fluid checked
-Cooling system checked
-Maintenance inspection completed
-Air filter replaced
-Oil and filter changed chassis lubricated
-Spark plugs replaced
-Exhaust system checked
-Fuel system cleaned/serviced
-Manufacturer's recommended maintenance performed
05/25/2007 34,755 Miles
-Power steering pump replaced
-Engine oil pump replaced
It talks about the parts ordered on 4/2 (but that seems a bit long).
Interesting that the pumps were replaced at the same time as the steering/suspension was "checked". Any clues there?
If nothing else, it's good to keep in mind that carfax should not be taken at face value. In this case I'm not sure how else to interpret it.
Thanks for your input.
Edit: By the way, I did call the dealer that did the service. Not too helpful, though it appears they tried (spent plenty of time on the phone with me).
