Never heard of a TPS gasket.

No, I did not mean an IAC o ring. I meant a red TPS gasket. It seems that some TPSs come with one and some don't.

They must come pre-installed in some TPSs then.

Yes, you can blast it with TB cleaner. However the way it is made, it probably will do little good. It is bit like a maze. I noticed no difference before or after cleaning. However after cracking the gasket, the idle was much faster and erratic. A bit of backing from a notepad, an Xacto-knife and some Indian Head gasket cement, all appears to be well.

This helped me tremendously: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f9/cl...mmies-1114849/

I used cleaner on everything except the sensor connectors (pin areas) to prevent potentially damaging them. I also rinsed the o-ring for the IAC in tap water to make sure it was completely clean before re-using it since it was in good shape and i didn't have a replacement. Otherwise, I'd say always replace o-rings as a best practice.
