Q: NEED HELP DIAGNOSING PROBLEM on 1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX

I recently had a new timing belt installed and now my car is vibrating massively through my pedal and motor during hard acceleration, I've checked around my engine and noticed that there seems to be a large amount of grease build up around the manifold gasket and while revving my car smoke was coming from the same area. What could be causing this??
