NO POWER AND SCREECHING BELT AND BURNING OIL

1997 Mazda 323

Engine Performance problem
1997 Mazda 323 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 110000 miles

Hi.I've got a Mazda 323 Estoril (1500) and it has really poor acceleration (low compression?), It's burning oil (blue smoke from exhaust when starting), and the belt screeches on startup when cold. Is it ready for the scrapheap or would it be worth sorting. Thanks. Ric
