Oil cooler To remove or to replace

My Jeep has an aftermarket oil cooler installed that has sprung a leak. My mechanic suggested removing it and re-installing the OE plugs. Any advise on removing or replacing it? It was installed before I bought it, so I'm not certain which oil cooler it is. If I should replace it, can anyone give me suggestions on which brand I should get?

I have a
2007 Jeep Commander Sport 4.7 L, with a
5.7 L radiator

All I can find are universal fit. Dorman, or B&M. Can't seem to find any direct fit.

I assume this was an aftermarket add on part??? I would just remove it and revert back to stock unless you see a need for the cooler.

That's what we did. It was an aftermarket.
Thanks for the advice!

My mechanic said it was leaking up by the condenser. He took it off, and fixed the leak. I picked it up today, but then had to take it right back. My CEL came on with a DTC P 0300. I'd take some pics of the cooler, but I left it in a box inside the Jeep.
It's got new plugs/wires
New coils
New Crankshaft position sensor, might be a little while tracking down the problem unfortunately. ��
Just had a new front drive shaft put in, control arms, ball joints, brakes all around, and the airbag module replaced.
Hope to have it back soon

DTC P 0300 is a random miss-fire code. I would check all of the plugs/coils etc. Have the shop re-check all of their work.

I second this.

That's just an extra component to worry about that's not needed.
