You have a fuel delivery problem. Change the fuel filter first see if that cures it. Depending on the year there may be more than one. If it's a later model it's an in line filter below the drivers door. There is also a sock on the fuel pump itself, which is in the gas tank ( probably NOT your problem )
If it's carborated there's a filter where the fuel enters the carb as well.

How do I clear abs codes on 02 tahoe?

You can clear it with a scan tool, or it will clear it self after 3 start up's if the ABS issue has been addressed and will clear from it's history after 100 start up's. The other thing you can do is to clear the ECM for every DTC codes. Place the ignition key to the run position and pull the ECM (Batt) Fuse from the fuse box for 30 sec. Then place it back in, wait 10 seconds and start the Tahoe. THE ENGINE MAY STALL, BUT LET IT. Just start it up again and let idle for 1 min then go for a test drive. The ECM is relearning the whole engine and transmission, if there is any issues the MILL light will come on and the codes will be new. If the light does not come one then there is no DTC codes and the Tahoe is clean like the day it came off the assembly line. Good luck and hope this helps.
