Hi, I just read your message from 2007 regarding the oil pump in your 2003 Land Rover Discovery. I know this is a little late but I was wondering if you could help me. I too have the same knocking noise coming from my engine. I had 8 lifters replaced last October and after my car being in the shop for over a month it was returned to me with the same pesky noise.
I have been reading about this oil pump problem and it seems to be pretty common.
Do you know how much money it takes to fix this issue? What did you end up doing? What is this alert you are referring to?
Any advice is greatly appreciated!

I am having the same issue and it is only getting worse by the day. Love my disco and wouldn't think of selling it, but I also need to find a way to fix the problem w/out having to purchase a new engine. I must say that the information that I have gathered online has been very helpful. Please let me know if there is a solution that will help with cost.......

Well, I haven't had any resolution from anyone really. I did however call the dealership and they told me to trade it in. It is a common problem and the only real solution is an engine replacement, which costs around $8,000 for our model.
I love my car but have been reluctantly looking for a new one.
