Default rough chugging bouncing under 1000 RPM

2001 manual PT feels like it's misfiring or something. kind of "bouncy" when idling. took it to the mechanic, he said ERROR CODE P0601. then he said the part was recalled and Chrysler dealer will replace and that's the only problem with the car.
doesn't sound right to me, anyone?

The code refers to a bad PCM which in some cases is covered under the 80,000 emissions warranty.
I don't know anything about a recall for that part.

i'm at about 93K
looks like this could cost $800
does the rough idle come from the bad PCM?

Don't think I've ever heard of the PCM causing a rough idle but that doesn't mean it couldn't happen. Lots of other things including timing being out, bad plug or wire or broken motor mount.

At 93K your timing belt could be on it's way out and that would make it mis-timed.
