If its leaking from the threads, try wrapping the thread with white PTFE thread tape. If its leaking elsewhere, take it back.

I had problems with my 1996 2.8l tdi oil pressure guage sender when new.
Complained to the chief mitsubishi dealer mechanic and they fixed it by mounting it remotely near the battery and running some high pressure hose to it.
Mitsu mecahnaic said they often fail on the diesels since they are the same as the petrol but can't take the extra vibration from the diesel.
The hose was made up by some one like Pirtek or other hydraulic hose mob.
Has worked well for over 8 years now.
