Internal fuel pumps are cooled by fuel. If you run your tank low a lot then the pump will get hotter than normal and lessen it's life. Heard also that these pumps don't like plugged filters either but this is up for debate I would watch the fuel level and fill at no less than quarter tank

The fuel pump is located in the fuel tank to keep the fuel cool. That way the fuel is cool pumping to the engine so it doesn't vaporize.

The whining noise is a common sound and problem with all Chevy trucks and suvs. Yes it is the fuel pump and it does not mean the pump is going out. Chevy recommends to keep the fuel tank 1/2 full at all times to keep the electric fuel pump cool. I've installed many NEW fuel pumps and they also whine/ make noise. It is just a common problem. If you are concerned about the fuel pump then you need to check the fuel pressure with a fuel gauge.

There are several things that can keep a Chevy Tahoe from starting including the starter being bad, a dead battery, an alternator, or a fuel pump.

How often is the filter been changed. Are you using the same brand of pump? You most likely have a short in the wiring harness of the pump. Check ground.

Well fuel is used to keep something going, and people use the internet, so internet fuel is what keeps the internet going. Answer: people, if they use the internet they are giving it fuel to continue to operate.

Have you replaced the fuel filter. A clogged fuel filter will burn a pump up.

Failed fuel pump, or a short to ground in the wiring to the pump.

Your fuel level sending unit is probably going bad. It is in the top of the fuel tank and the fuel tank must be removed to change it.

First, check the fuel filter. It could be letting just enough fuel through to start you going but not keep you going. Has you're catalytic converter ever been replaced? As they get warmed up they can shut down the exhaust system. How about your coil. When it gets warmed up it can stop working.

There's a short in your main line going to your fuel heater.

that means your fuel pump is going bad and is working harder to keep up...replace it soon

Once an object is moving in space, no fuel is needed tokeep it going, only to change its speed or direction.

I think you should check the fuel pump . If you keep[ the tank above half tank and it stops hesitating you will know it is the pump

It's keep going on, or keep on going.

Yes, to keep the fuel mixture correct. Fuel mixture helps your vehicle get power when it needs it and controls the MPG. Also, depending on your engine, there are 4 O2 sensors, 2 before the converter and 2 after the converter.

Yes, the need to keep the generators going.

It has a compartment of fuel like a car and stored the fuel so that once they launch off they can keep going after they drop the bottom of the rocket and then use the journey fuel.

More than likely you have a faulty fuel gauge sending unit located inside the fuel tank.
