Is there anyway to like clean it out or should i just buy a new one?

Thanks for the help

I have a 97 ram 2500 diesel, I would suggest using contact cleaner. I simply spray it through the opening then rotate the sensor several times with a screwdriver, dump out the left over liquid and repeat several times until the liquid coming out is clean. I did this on my truck at about 100k and have not had a problem since. I now have 187k on my truck.
