Waterfall effect with sensors?

Experianced wrench turner here, One thing I have always tossed around in my head is the waterfall affect when it comes to certain things failing on vehicles. Well, my truck turned about 24 years old, and I recently had to replace the EGR control solonoid and it appears that the MAP sensor has gone out too. Do you guys think that it is just the fact that it's 24 years old? or could it be possible that when you replace certain sensors it could stress worn out, or tired sensors and cause them to fail?

Just an idea I have been throwing around in my head, I appreciate input

No, it's just a 24 year old truck. Shit gets old and fails.

That's what I was thinking, but it was an interesting thought

No one designs electronic systems that way. There are about 4 levels of protection from that in the EEC-IV system; more on newer PCMs.
