Question lambda adjustment - 87 300E?

lambda adjustment - would this be necessary if the car was adjusted for sea level and is now a mile up? I thought that these adjustments were done automatically with the jetting???? (on board computer stuff). But since this car is an 87, and Iím not a car expert, I can change the spark plugs and diagnose problems, but when you get real technical on me...

Anyway, anyone with info, I'd be grateful.

An easy way to know is to have it checked. Eventually you will have to get to know a tech/shop, so here is a perfect opportuniy. You may want to get the engine looked over and the lambda checked.

Most of these did have altitude compensation. Without the book in front of me, I can't say for sure.

Exclamation Gracias!

Thanks, I will take it into a shop asap, too bad I'm not close to you, otherwise I'd have it right over. Unfrtntly, I'll have to drive 40 miles to the closest shop
