Hello World, recently my macbook pro has encountered a serious problem!

Well not to long ago, my mac started acting very strange. I turned it on and it was really slow and lagged for no reason and the fans constantly ran as well. I looked at the cpu usage and it was completely taken up by a system task called kernel_task. i ran my computer in safe mode and did many virus scans and got nothing. THen i ran a hardware test and got what appeantly is a heat sensor error. i don't exactly know if this i my true problem but can any give me any ideas of how much this repair would cost and if there is anyway to fix it myself. Thank you!

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
