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

Will the Chevy Tahoe make whining noise if the fuel pump is going out?

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.
