What it is when your car leaking orange stuff from the raditor

My car has 174000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

Good question and thank your for asking. The orange fluid leaking from your radiator is your antifreeze. You will need to find where it is leaking. If you would like a professional technician to inspect your coolant system leak, I would recommend having a professional technician from YourMechanic come to your home or office to make the inspection and repair.
