Default error code p0551

Hi I have just purchased an 02 pt cruiser touring petrol car today. Before I even got home the engine light came on and a bit later on it felt a bit sluggish on power. I have read a few threads on here and tried the key dance thing and came up with error code p0551. Does any one have any thoughts on this
Thanks :-)

I'd do a search here, and check the link in my signature.

I'd guess you're outside the US? (we don't use the word 'petrol' much here)
is it a 2.0 then?

Hi I'm in the uk. It is a 2.0 l auto. I disconnected the battery to reset and engine light went off but has since returned with the same code showing. I will check out your link.

The fan belt has also started making a noise so guess I better put in the garage to get checked out.

Pretty common fault code on this side of the pond. Here's one of the older posts dealing with it. Welcome to the forum.
