What model are we talking about?

My turbocharged 300D handles altitude pretty well until you get it over 10,000 feet. My non-turbo 240D made it over 8,000 foot passes, but was down on power. I never got either car up high enough to not start, and I've never done anything special for high altitude, but I only live at 4,700 feet, and seldom go any higher than Mt. Rose Summit (a little under 9,000).
Whoever said there's nothing more expensive than a cheap Mercedes never had a cheap Jaguar.

83 300D Turbo with manual conversion, early W126 vented front rotors and H4 headlights 367,xxx miles
08 Triumph Street Triple 30,xxx miles, lowered 10mm in front, Pirelli Angel GT tires, EBC HH brake pads, otherwise stock.
88 Jaguar XJS V12 93,xxx miles. I should be in the garage now.
