Fuel spraying out

I have a 1998 Toyota Corolla 4 cylinder standard with 130,000 miles on it. After changing my spark plugs, when cranking the engine, gas started spraying out of the engine. I do not know the terms of the parts of the engine, but it is the part then brings the fuel to the engine in four spots. The one leaking is the 4th one. The tube that is in the engine and has the clip receptacle for the wires was not all the way connected to the main body that holds all four of the fuel things. I tried to push it back in lightly and it is still leaking. My only guess is that there is a bad o-ring that the piece is supposed to clip into. Can you help?

Thanks,
Heidi

Fuel is supplied to the injectors via the fuel rail. Each injector has an o-ring seal at both ends. You would have to remove the fuel rail and injectors and purchase new seals and install them.
Buy a Haynes manual for your particular year for the procedure if you intend to do it yourself.
