    What do those numbers mean

    Those are all technical service bulletins issued by GM for issues I think are related to your symptoms. Just copy one and paste it in your search engine. You should be able to pull up the text of the bulletin.

    more than likely it is the fuel pump. It is the most common thing we see on gm trucks at my shop.

    Changed one recently that had been replaced recently and found that the internal fuel line was to long and was crushed/kinked when installed. This resulted in a very reduced fuel flow and would idle great and under part throtle work ok but when you gave full pedal and needed gas it would fall on it's face. It did not happen right away and owner never towed and was not an "aggressive" driver so it was not noticed for quite awhile and was discovered when his son borrowed the truck. Excact same symptoms as clogged fuel filter. Check pressures and go from there, much easier to change filter than pump and cheaper too and that is where I would start.
