Idle sputtering -possible leak?

'03 wrangler 4.0L

Okay I've searched all threads and I thought I should just start my own thread to get an answer for my problem.

Few weeks ago my jeep was slowly losing it's power. The check engine light came on and the code indicated my TPS. I replaced it (mind you it was a &*#$ cause of those screws) and I gained some of the power back but when i start my jeep it had a very high idle and eventually went down. So I cleaned my TB with TB cleaner and the IAC. It still has a high idle At start but very much improved after cleaning but while my jeep is stopped/parked my idle goes up and down. Help it's driving me nuts!

Also, I don't know I this is related but I have a slight leak under my front passenger side. It's kind of behind the tire any ideas?

Thank you for anyones help!

I'm having similar problems. Hopefully someone will post an answer other than change your O2 sensors.
