Fuel pump went out on my 2001 discovery 2. I put a new fuel

Customer Question

Fuel pump went out on my 2001 discovery 2. I put a new fuel in and it started right up, I drove it maybe 10 miles at the most and it died while I was driving and couldn't get it to start. Towed it home found that one of the hose to the fuel pump cane off. I put it back on and the vehicle still won't start.
JA: Have you ever replaced the fuel pump, or is this the original?
Customer: I bought a new one and put it in.
JA: Are you fixing your Discovery yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes, I replaced the fuel pump, so far checked all the fuses and don't know what else to try since it started right up when I first put the new fuel pump in.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No that's it.
