I'm having a couple of issues with this vehicle I'm

I'm having a couple of issues with this vehicle I'm wondering if they're related.Hard to get started or stay running when cold. But once it's warmed up or running for a couple of mins it starts fine.Took to oreilly, said I needed a TPS , so we replace the throttle position sensor first thing this morning started still same issue. I do not have the specific code in through. It's been driven about 30 miles and no check engine light has come on.Will get warm if sitting at an idle after the vehicle is fully reached operating temperature meaning it's almost to the red if I drive the vehicle I can get the temperature to drop down or if I'm just driving it on the highway the temperature runs normal. I just purchased this vehicle it had a lot of black junk almost like tar in the radiator cap. Sticks to your fingers like grease.
