Preventive Maintenance

Is it bad to leave your car in the garage all winter without turning it on or moving it?

I also have an orange liquid leaking out from underneath the car. Even though I hasn't been turned on and move. I'm thinking it's coolant Where could it be leaking?

Possible leak points include hoses, the radiator, heater core, water pump, thermostat housing, head gasket, freeze plugs, automatic transmission oil cooler, cylinder head(s) and block.

Note: orange color is an indication of a rust sediment in the coolant. Flush the radiator coolant.
