If you have 119.5K and have never replaced the convertor, maybe now'* the time. If you see something smoking but can't find from where, it may be backed-up exhaust leaking out the intake. My money is on a clogged catalytic convertor here.

Yes most likely that is the problem... or look for coolant leeks if coolant is getting into your exaust and steaming it might look like smoke and if your engine trys to fire gas cooolant and air mix it would run like yours also.
