That is a lot of mileage for a 4.3, you must take care of it, have you had the codes checked? There could be some stored in memory that will steer you in the right direction, could be an O2 sensor just out of specs but not open or shorted so it won't turn on the check engine light. Might do a compression test just to make sure the compression is good and not too low.
