Oil pump

(1999 Ford Explorer)
The oil pump on my 99 explorer went out about 6 months ago. I had it replaced and now it has gone out again. How can this happen? I have never even heard of one oil pump going out. Is there something that would cause an oil pump not to work?

What exactly is wrong with the oil pump? I ask this because yes, this is really an unusual situation. One thing that comes to mind is that the part was not a quality part. How often do you change your oil and filter?
The oil pump on your V6 is driven by a shaft that connects to a gear on the cam shaft. On many V6 Ford engines with Coil Pack Ignition Systems, the Cam Sensor is put where the distributor used to be and is opposite the oil pump drive shaft.
