hey how are you

1- yes The TPS sensor is a common problem ,but did you have it scanned with a factory scanner or equivalent & retrieve any fault codes

it should set a code ,even if the light is not on now with factory scanner you can retrieve pending & history code

by good idea also to take Throttle body out and inspect for carbon build up ,in case the plate is getting stuck intermittently and causing the tps to cause that fault

Please let me know

Thank You
