I don't know where you are located, but orange dust is usually from dried out coolant. As far as the engine, check for vacuum leaks and check to make sure the IAC is working properly.

IAC stands for idle air control. It is a solenoid that is responsible for maintaining engine idle.

On the throttle body (where the carb would sit on an old car).
