Just because the fuel pump is making sound, it doesnt mean it is working properly. You are definitely having a fuel delivery problem, most likely the fuel pump. There is the chance the it is a fuel filter. But most likely it is the fuel pump

I'm assuming you mean the injector pump and not the fuel lift pump. I would recommend if the fuel injector pump is proved to be the fault to look at Ebay for a replacement. there are thousands of these engines broken for spares. Fitting the pump can be a bit tricky. If it's the lift pump you need to remove the fuel tank as the pump is fitted on the top side of the tank and is an internal unit, Best done when the tank is empty. Hope this helps as i'm sure your landrover will still be running when a Jeep is in the dump. All the best.

2000 discovery no start after new battery/alternator installed

Start with the fuel cutoff......sometimes they need to be reset. Step 2 would be the the fuel relay.........I doubt that the fuel pump is not working as you said you can hear it engage. Let me know if you need anymore help.
