When the engine overheats, antifreeze gushes out underneath..
Where is it leaking? Normally there is no place that it can come out underneath.

You either have a head gasket failure or the coolant is not circulating. If coolant is puking out of the bottom of the engine (not just a bad hose connection) then you have some major engine work ahead of you....

If you can't determine this stuff yourself, then you need to get a Subaru shop to check it out. Hopefully it's just a rotten hose. If so, replace them all, or others will soon fail. But from what you described, it doesn't sound good. Repeated overheating will wreck an engine.

Good luck.
