How to replace a water pump on 2001 Chevy Tahoe?
Hello & Welcome,
Can you tell us the 8th letter of your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number)? This will tell us what engine you have in your vehicle.
OK - Thanks.
That is the 5.3L engine. Below are the instructions:

All gaskets surfaces are to be free of oil or other foreign material during assembly.
Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.
Align the arrow at the throttle body end of the duct with the throttle body attaching stud.
Tighten the air cleaner outlet duct clamp screws to 7 N·m (62 lb in).
I hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more help.
I am so sorry, I made a mistake. I meant the fuel pump. Can you help on the fuel pump replacement?
Not a problem. It has less diagrams - lol.

Drain the fuel from the fuel sender assembly into an approved container in order to reduce the risk of fire and personal injury. Never store the fuel in an open container.
In order to reduce the risk of fire and personal injury that may result from a fuel leak, always replace the fuel sender gasket when reinstalling the fuel sender assembly.
The fuel pump strainer must be in a horizontal position when the fuel sender is installed in the tank. When installing the fuel sender assembly, assure that the fuel pump strainer does not block full travel of the float arm.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more information.
