What color is the smoke? if its white you could be leaking coolant into the cylinders causing it not to start untill the fluid is burned out.

    black smoke means that u are burning rich. to much gas is being used. check the smell of the car when it starts would smell like gas. the fuel can get into the cylinder from either a leaking fuel injector, faulty fuel pump or if the car uses a carburetor it could need adjusting.

    if there is blue in the smoke that means oil is entering the system

Sounds like you have a leaking head gasket maybe. Does the smoke have a sweet smell to it? If not it is oil or fuel.

At what mileage do you change a cam belt on a ford fiesta 1.3 LX

this should be changed at about 100,000 kil(60,000 miles) to lessen the chance of engine damage,each manufacture has there own requirements but this is a rule of thumb,as the belt takes alot of abuse starting and stopping the motor and spinning at 3,000 rpm`s or more constantly.

95 escort smoke from vents vibration when accelerating why??

The smoke you could be seeing may be steam, your heater inside the vehicle may have a leak and causing steam to rise out of the vents, if you are smelling the steam this is what I suspect.
Engine vibration could be a number of things, check the engine mounts to start, one of them is probably broken.
