If you do take it out and clean it, be prepared for new oil leaks that you may never have noticed. One thing about all that grime, it may be plugging up a leak somewhere.

Yeah, if you have it out anyway and in an engine stand, it would be a great time to do a new oil pan gasket and rear main seal.

Crap if it was me and I had my engine out I'd just replace every gasket and seal I could. Might cost a bit but in the long run could save a lot of headache
