There are numerous other issues which could be causing the vehicle to stall out besides just the TPS. The Mass Airflow Sensor could be bad, causing the car to miscalculate fuel/air mixture based on airflow and temps. Fuel injectors could be clogged or misfiring. Cap/Rotor/Coil/Plugs/Plug wires could be malfunctioning. Check these things before replacing any other sensors in a shotgun attempt to fix the problem. It's easy to go broke fixing one sensor after another and still having the same problem when you're done.
