Land Rover Discovery 2002 TD5 Whirring Noise/Query Fuel Problem

Hi there

I own a 2002 Land Rover Discovery 2 TD5 2.5 Diesel which over the years I have had quite a few problems with.

Recently over the past 2-3 weeks I have had major problems with the vehicle. The problem which I am having is that the vehicle has developed a constant whirring noise even when the engine is running and whilst driving. Over the past week it has taken 8 attempts to try and start the vehicle and sometimes I have had to prime it to get it to start. However this week it has taken 2-3 attempts to start the vehicle and I cannot understand what is causing this problem.

We took it to our local garage yesterday and it has had a new fuel filter fitted by the mechanic. The mechanic thinks it may be the fuel pump but cannot be 100% certain and does not want to put a wrong part on. It has been on the diagnostic machine and there is nothing showing up for this model. He also said there was diesel swishing around in the fuel tank, could this be something to do with the injectors and is there a return valve somewhere on the vehicle?

Has anybody else had problems like this? Any information would be most appreciated

Could be. I would describe fuel pump as a whine rather than a whirr. If you have a noisy one they go "meoowwwwwww" when you put the ignition on (noise down by the tank) run for a few seconds and then shut off (I think it is about 30 sec) if you don't start the engine. Fuel pump doesn't trigger diagnostics, the only proper check is a pressure gauge on the fuel regulator block.
