Will replacing the upper case (keyboard) fix my MacBook Pro?

I was pulling an all-nighter to get work done for college and right before I was about to go to bed I spilled about a half a glass of iced tea onto the keyboard of my refurbished Macbook Pro that I just bought in August. I immediately turned the computer upside down and shut it off. The next day I booted it up and everything worked fine other than the keys being sticky (which didn't worry me too much since I can clean them). However, 2 days after the spill my keyboard started acting up. Certain keys have type more than one character now. For example, my function key types a letter 'b' but also acts as the function key. Tab types an 'x' and then tabs, as well as the x key types 'x' and then tabs. I am also experiencing problems with my spacebar/n keys; my m/' keys, etc. I took the computer in to the Apple store and they told me that the liquid damage was so great that they would have to replace everything and charge me about $1,200! A friend of mine suggested that my logic board was messed up so I took the whole computer apart and cleaned it, there was virtually no residue on the logic board itself. When I booted it back up, everything worked fine until it had been on for about 30 minutes. It seems that when the computer heats up, the keyboard starts acting up. I am, however, able to use an external keyboard with no problems which leads me to think that my logic board is fine and I just need to replace the upper case. So here's my question; will replacing the upper case solve my problem? Or is it my logic board that is damaged?
