Default '96 jetta turns over but won't start

I got a '96 jetta with about 188000 miles on it and I can't get it to start. I've replaced the fuel filter and the coil recently. Previously from this problem I replaced the oil filter, cap, rotor and spark plugs. The problem seemed to start when I accidentally over filled it with oil. I drove about 15 miles with it about a quart over filled, after I drained the oil to the correct level it started a couple times but didn't have any power and died after I put on the gas. After words I replaced the coil and it started again, but died a quarter mile down the road. It started a few more times, enough to get me back home (wouldn't go over 30mph before it died) and it hasn't started since. Can someone give me some ideas what could be wrong?
