Can you hear the fuel pump run up when you turn the key to the "Run" position w/o starting? If so, then you need to get a fuel pressure gauge and check the next time it stalls. Harbor Freight carries them. Also check the fuel pump relay.

Thanks for your reply. Yes. Can hear fuel pump priming. Service tech at 1st dealer said pressures were ok--after replacing pump. Car wont start now. Need to get trailer to drag home. Already replaced relay
#755 of 762 2013 Chevy Tahoe will not accelerate

So disgusted with my new Tahoe. I do not have 8,000 miles on it and it will drive OK for 5 mins then will not accelerate, sputters when I hit the gas. It feels like it will just stop. I barely got it home. What in the world would cause this? I have the 5.3 engine. I am afraid it will not make it to the dealer without stopping and leaving me on the side of the road. It is under warranty for sure, but I hate to see it start staying at the dealer and not in my driveway.

Forgot to add I already checked the gas cap, etc. It just stutters when I hit the gas going up a hill, etc. Feels like it will stall out. Slows down, makes a loud noise from underneath when this happens, but nothing is falling out.

Could be the fuel pump going Tango Uniform. But it could be a myriad of other things. I'd get it to the dealer soon.

The Tahoe left me stranded. Fuel pump failed. Can't believe I had less than 8000 miles and fuel pump failed. The dealer it was towed too was so rude. Really need to watch the fuel pumps in these vehicles.

Try not to run the tank below 1/4 as the fuel keeps the pump motor cool.

Have to wonder if something else is going on. It's hard to "fill-up" a gas tank (mine's a 20 gallon tank and it's rare that I can get 18 gallons in, even after the low fuel light has been on a while).

o2 sensor was our problem.. dealership even replaced transmission thinking that was the problem.. new fuel pump etc.. Once we replaced the o2 sensor never had a problem.
