Does anyone known if there exists a repair manual that covers 2001 Super Charged engines. Was crossing my fingers and hoping I didn't need to remove the super charger to replace the driver's side valve cover gasket.. seems like the procedure may be different from the naturally aspirated 3.3L... (hopefully, not harder)...if anyone has run into this and knows of any video or instructions, it would be greatly appreciated..
Thanks,
Steve

The factory service manual is available online. I have a link on my pc but not my phone unfortunately. Think it's nico club or something like that. Others will know.

I have to replace my gaskets as well. I'm told the upper intake plenum has to come off (oh joy). But mine is not S/C'd so don't know about that.

You can do it without removing the supercharger; you have to remove the inlet assembly bolted to the driver's side of the supercharger. You'll need to replace gasket P/N 14465-5S700. If you need just the "engine mechanical" chapter, you can get that in the "knowledge base" at NissanHelp.com.

Would you happen to know if there are 2 catalytic converters on each bank of a supercharged 2001?.. Thanks..Builder99

Yes, two upstream converters and two downstream converters (I think Nissan refers to the rear converters as "front pipe assemblies").

Too bad about the NICO manuals....

In March 2018, Nissan North America (NNA) served notice upon NICOclub that the documents contained herein infringe upon the intellectual property rights of Nissan and demanded we immediately disable access to the contents of Nissan Service Manuals and Infiniti Service Manuals:

Grrr!

So much for a good thing! NissanHelp.com has individual chapters of the FSM for a lot of vehicles in their knowledge base section. It doesn't have all of the chapters, but usually the most common ones, like engine control, engine mechanical, brakes...
