I'm confused too. Without knowing what was all damaged in the accident, it will be hard to help/diagnose your issue on this forum. What you are referring to as the timing belt sounds like your descriping the serpentine belt. As far as the oil leak, you will need to pinpoint the area that it is leaking. If it is indeed behind the crank pulley, and your compression is low in one cyclinder, your probably looking at spending big money on rebuilding the engine. Might be easier to swap in another one? Without pics, and more information this all I can help with. Maybe someone else can take a stab at it.
