Depends. If it is 91 (can't remember the exact manufacture date during 91) or earlier, then it has the M20 engine and yes, the valves have to be adjusted. If it is 91 or later with the M50 engine then no. It doesn't make sense because the M50 has hydraulic lifters. Some may be worn and leaking down, but the valves don't get adjusted on the M50.
