leaking oil cooler

So my oil cooler is leaking oil. Am I better to just replace it or reseal. My only concern about resealing it is the built up gunk that is more than likely inside of it.

If you think it is clogged then replace it vs. cleaning. The oil side is finned and hard to clean fully. Disturbing it could put crud back in your lubrication sys.

I did mine the inside looked amazingly clean.
I would buy the seal kit, inspect it while you have it out, if its nasty either clean or replace
I think an oldschool hot tank would get it clean

Mine looked extremely clean inside as well. I'd try a reseal kit. It's a common fix.
