I have a 1999 chevy silverado 1500. Fuel pump is whining. Is this normal?

No that's not normal.

I would replace it before it dies. Sometimes they last forever with the whine, but other times that's a sign they are on their way out.

Only use acdelco pump modules. Unless you like doing fuel pumps Haha.

My Original pump was replaced with a Delphi Pump Assembly.
Hoping it has along life also.

ACDelco fuel pump assemblies are often relabeled/rebranded Delphi fuel pumps. Delphi is a major OEM manufacturer. Going with either ACDelco or Delphi should give you a lot of miles!

Or, for just a wee bit more, you could buy a spanking new Silverado 2500 4x4 and not have to worry about the fuel pump noise for some years.
