could be a clogged fuel filter and with pump pressure behind it, it's forcing gas out through rotted gaskets. Could be clogged/dirty injectors doing the same. As the car's pre 1996, you probably won't find a mechanic willing to diagnose this, but addressing the issues I mentioned will likely solve your problem.
