If the engine was starting ok before you changed the pump, then it must be something you have done or disturbed, retrace you steps, make sure all pipes are tight connections are good etc

Engine hard to start when cold seems to require a lot of pumpimg of the accelerator pedal. Vehicle also unexpectedly quits running while in progress.

possible casues of this problem: clogged fuel filter, bad fuel pump, or dirty injectors.

new fuel filter

air it ok?

pump should be checked...".dismiss if you think it works.

get a good injector cleaner..

there are alot more possibilities but these are the most vital

Landrover discovery fuel pump

Has it got power to the pump, if it has then the pump has gone, if not then check the in-line fuse in the fuse box.
