if the engine is wet with fuel then 1st place ot check is the fuel injector connections and the downstream connections to the injector 'rail'

look carefully at the tops of the injectors for signs of wetness and if present then the injectors will have to be removed and the o-ring seal replaced

also check where the fuel supply pipes are attached as, depending on your model the connection can be a push fit type or a just a hose clamp - in which case it can just be tightened up

if its a push fit connection then the entire hose will need replacing
