how do i remove sludge from 4.7 dodge engine
Hello and Welcome to JustAnswer,

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am here to try and assist your with your question. They make a product to put in the oil to clean out the sludge and can get it at any parts store. I suggest removing the oil pan after running the cleaner to get all the sludge out. Otherwise some will remain in the pan and can cause a restriction on the oil pump screen. Also clean the screen when the pan is removed

Will this cleaner clean ou the oil cooler. Am pulling a horse trailer should i replace the oil pump with a high volume one?

Yes it will clean out the oil cooler. If dropping the pan to clean out the sludge then yes not a bad idea to replace the pump with a high volume one
