I am thinking of buying
It's a 4.3 litre V6 engined PU.
These vehicles are not reliable at this age and mileage (nor were they when near new) so you will be buying yourself a repair bill unless a heap of items on the vehicle have been renewed.
At 192000 miles the vehicle is passed it's useful life.
There are numerous problems from bad axle seals to engine and transmission issues, brake problems, various electrical problems, fuel pump failures etc etc. You need to check everything especially the auto which will fail and is not cheap to replace.
High mileage vehicles are rarely a decent buy and are cheap to purchase for a reason.

How do I replace heater core in a 2005 uplander
You don’t need to remove the dash or remove AC refrigerant from 2005 Chevy Uplander. Its a simple job takes about an hour with 10 mm socket and Phillips screwdriver. Core is in the center of dash near the floor. Remove lower panels on center of dash where passanger
Left leg and driver right leg would be. Also the front lower panel where cigarette lighter is. They pop out. Also remove fiber cover from under glove box and driver area. Remove large black plastic member behind where the lower center panels were. Two black screws in front and seveal screws in either side. Pull to rear to slide out. Remove metal bracket on floor with 4-10mm. Remove vent from floor pops out. Look up underneath from area you created under center of dash. Many vertical gold colored screws. Remove first cover panel 4 screws. Remove second panel mores screws. Theres one clear against firewall by driver side also. After this heater core is accessible held in with only one screw by firewall remove it and core drops out easily after wiggle out pipe ends from firewall holes. This is about 20 minutes to this point
Before remove heater core, drain coolant, remove front engine yoke bolts, ratchet strap engine pull forward and block. Pop out windshield wiper link and brake booster vacuum hose so can reach hose connections from engine side. Remove hose clamps and disconnect hoses to core. One hose is 3/4 id and the other is 5/8” that necks out to 3/4” on other end.
The hardest part about the whole job was getting the hoses off then in with these spiring clamps and finding the right replacement hose and connectors. Not the removal of the core which is surprisingly easy.
