Question about 1993 Volkswagen Passat
Sounds like the thermostat has failed and is stuck shut. Car overheats because coolant cannot get to engine due to stuck thermostat.
On the otherhand, you could have damaged the engine (i.e. cracked block, head, etc) when it overheated and "spilled coolant out everywhere". Suggest you take it to a reputable mechanic that you trust.
