The 91 TPI has a serpentine belt, so I doubt the screeching is from the belt.
The screeching sound may be the bearings from lack of oil. The smoke may be from the fact that everything is fried since the oil hasn't been changed for 20,000 miles.
In 20,000 miles, the oil should have been changed at least 6 times, if not seven times.
If your post is not a joke, and you really haven't changed your oil at regular 3000 mile intervals, I would take it to a shop and have the oil cap removed, and install a new engine under it, reinstall the oil cap, then start changing oil every 3000 miles. Your car may last a bit longer that way.
