WHY IS GAS BLOWING OUT THE EXHAUST AND LEAKING DOWN THE BACK SIDE OF ENGINE

1998 Toyota Rav4 • 165,000 miles

2.0 engine heavy white smoke and gas emitting from exhaust, noticed gas leaking from back side of engine not sure where from. #4 cylinder has excess gass inside 1, 2, and 3 cylenders are dry. Compression seems ok dont have a compression tester.

Start with a compression test. Is it overheating? What color is the smoke? Get the fuel leak fixed asap to prevent fire.
