engine? on 1999 Volkswagen Passat

My 1999 VW Passat "popped" when I started it and oil went everywhere underneath the car. It still starts and I can pull it forward and backward but there is no oil left and I'm afraid to drive it. What happened and how do I fix it?

Don't drive it in this condition, tow it to a repair shop and ask them to check it for you. There might be some serious damage to the engine. Zee

what engine? it could be the o ring on your oil cooler is toast, the oil cooler is what the oil filter screws onto on the 1.8t engine, could be crankcase breather hose, and it could be many other things, if the car is low on oil or really leaking oil dont drive it. www.passatworld.com for help.
