Check the PCV system, make sure the valve is working and the clean air tubes are clean and no restrictions, clean the throttle body with throttle body cleaner, replace the valve cover gaskets to take care of that leak. The TPS is part of the throttle body and is not serviceable, if you are getting a code for TPS failure then you stuck with replacing the throttle body, make sure you follow the instruction carefully so you don't damage the internal workings.
