As for that engine management light it could be a faulty camshaft sensor sounds like it but you would have to plug it in to see the code for sure....................

Anywhere between 50-100 depending on where you go although a used one will be cheaper. Newage scooby's have just one camshaft sensor behind the left head. Easily removed by yourself but i recommend you have your CEL error read by a Scooby specialist to make sure that's what it is before buying anything.
