Look up overhead above the sending unit for any oil that maybe dripping from above,makeing you think it's the sending unit leaking. If not then you may use a little thread sealer to seal the leak. Also check to see if the sending unit is loose and the threads may not be the same as the old unit you removed (metric/standard/pipe) Hope this will help you.

The 2003 gm vehicles have a common problem within the instrument cluster panel. Each gage has a "stepper motor" soldered to the back side of the circuit board; and a very small shaft protroding through the circuit board with a needle for the gage attached . The stepper motors are about the size of a quarter in diameter with four terminals. They are small gearmotors. They do not have a spring return; so when they fail their needles do not return to home (0 psi for example or 0 miles/hour). You can find reputable repair shops online. One I know of in Minnesota is www.speedometerrepairguy.com. I bought the parts from him (on ebay) and soldered them myself but beware you need advanced soldering skills here not to mention a very good magnifying glass to inspect the solder joints. I hope this helps.
In my case the speedometer was hanging up in cold weather.
Replacing the stepper motors cured my troubles.
