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.

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.

Why does the fuel pump in your 1996 Tahoe keep going out?

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

How do you get better gas mileage for your 1997 Tahoe?

Keep the air pressure in the tires at the factory recommended pressure. Do not haul anything around you do not need. Drive the speed limit and take off slowly. Turn the engine off it you will be stopping for over 15 seconds. Make sure the engine is tuned properly and if the check engine light is on have the problem repaired. Something like a faulty O2 sensor can cause the engine to burn excess fuel. Other that this there is not much you can do. A 1997 Chevy Tahoe is a large heavy vehicle with poor aerodynamics and is a gas hog. It is going to use allot of fuel no matter what you do. The very best you are going to get is around 14 city and 17 highway with a combined mileage of around 15 mpg.
