CADILLAC CTS ENGINE PROBLEM

2003 Cadillac CTS • 129,500 miles

I was driving my CTS and suddenly the TC lumagny was illuminated and the car gave: power engine reduced. The throttle pedal doesn't work. I open the hood I found a smoke and a strong oil odor. Moreover I heart a bearing sound.
I waited few minute, I cleared the ECM with my obd2 and the car works. However the problem occurs approximately each week.
Is it possible that is due du the wearing of the timing belt bearings and seal what causes the oil leak?
