Default code p0340

I have codes p0551 and now p0340 coming up. The engine was over heating and I fillled Up twice with coolant then it was jerky if the revs above 2000 and lost power. Now today its driving nicely but the water temperature won't rise at all and the heaters not working.
I also have a sqeak from the fan belt intermittently.
Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
Thanks :-)

P0551 - you should replace the Power Steering pressure switch.

P0340 - You should replace the Camshaft sensor, but only with one from the dealer.

Re-filling the coolant twice - find where it's leaking either externally or internally. No heater maybe because the heater core is the highest level and your low in coolant. When you re-filled the system, did you bleed all the air out?

Hi thanks, I will order new sensors.
No I didn't bleed the air as I was by the roadside so just filled up the coolant.
