TPS sensors do not require cleaning and trying to do so would likely result in creating a problem. The throttle body and IAC are what typically needs cleaning out and you can find a basic tutorial here. http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=46454

this may sound crazy but how do you remove the electrical connection from the IAC.It has a red tab on it .Just not sure how to remove it without breaking it.Makes it easy to remove the screws holding the IAC to the throttle body

The red tab is called a connector position assurance lock and it needs to be slid back to disengage the connector release.

Depress the release under the red lock and slide the connector off.

It depends on the application. Older cable operated TB's can be cleaned with carb cleaner, specialty TB cleaners or brake cleaner. Newer electronic throttle bodies need to be cleaned with ONLY brake cleaner.
