Power steering pump every other oil chng

1999 Ford Taurus SE 4dr Sedan
Car was perfect til about 110k. Had a few minor issues but nothing out of the ordinary. Then, since 10/07, have only put about 18k on it. 2 racks, 4 power steering pumps, still growls even though new pump. Have had pumps die after just 3 weeks. As far as rest if time, gas mileage on ordinary driving, 20 mpg. This car replaced a 91 caprice which got the same, but had a V8. Have gotten as high as 29 on highway. Adequate power, has gone down since bought car. Tranny--no actual problems except speed sensor a while back. Ride--a little stiff for long trips being the SE, but corners well. Love: fold down rear seats.
Fold down rear seats, corners well (SE version). Has 127k on it, burns no oil yet. Alum exhaust/radiator still original
Well, they changed it in 2000. The flip up front console which blocks the cig lighter, fortunately there are 2 of them. headlights hard to change & not much light from them. All seem to start to rust on drivers side front of rear wheel well.
