Orange engine light is on the deshboard toyota fortuner 2006 model
I strongly suggest you check in your vehicle handbook for the exact meaning of the light.
Mostly, with few variations, it means something has gone wrong with the electronic emission control and the engine management system has logged the fault and switched to a get-you-home preogramme.
Lots of people don't bother too much about such things as long as the engine still runs but in some places ignoring the light can get the driver fined.
Certainly the tailpipe emissions are likely to be high, perhaps the performance lower and fuel consumption higher and it will be shortening the life of the oxygen sensors and cat converter.
Most handbooks will tell you the light means "proceed to your nearest dealer".
