hello, the first thing you'll need to do is look for the coolant leak and get that fixed, if coolant was all over the ground i would suspect that you had a hose or waterpump fail. it could also be the radiator. once you find the the leak get it repaired and see if the engine runs hot or normal as long as it runs normal then you'll be ok but if its running hot after fixing the leak you'll have to have the engine checked for damage.
