Q: engine? on 1999 Volkswagen Passat

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
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?

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.
