Thanks yes it's more the engine reliability of the 651 I'm interested in not the facelift part of things as the 651 engine is fitted to quite a few models I thought many owners would be able to chime in on its reliability.

At the risk of appearing to proffer further (unwelcome ) advice Robsey29, perhaps a thread titled something like "651 engine reliability or issues advice wanted".
Whilst this forum is indeed frequented by quite a number of knowledgable & experienced folks, IMHO it does seem that the inclusion of a commercial vehicle in the title serves to alienate a good number of them.
Perhaps a more ambivalent title would encourage those more precious types to post some pertinent observations without fear of sullying themselves in a "Van thread" .??

Vito 2011, having stripped it down to replace a faulty seal in the INJ pump, I decided on changing the timing gear also due to the horror stories I had read about the OM651.

I have to say the chain, sprockets and guide rails are all in very good condition - 100k work horse.

I wouldn't worry about it.
