Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
If this is the CA16 engine then there's no need for sealing washers or sealing tape on the head bolts as they don't pass through the water jacket
if this is a different engine then examine the cylinder block, where the bolts thread into the block.
If the bolt thread or shank of the bolt is exposed to the water jacket then yes it will need a sealing washer to prevent water entering the cam space of the head
however I've not seen a Nissan engine like this before

I have been a Nissan Technician for 27 Years. I have done plenty of these engines back in the day. Nissan to this day all of there engines all have Head Bolts washers. It has been shared with you through illustrations from the factory manual as well. All E- Series engines have cylinder head bolt washers. Does not matter if it's a E16i , E16L or E16T
There is limited documentation on this now because of the vehicles age.
