    Welcome to the club!!!

    lots of cheap fixes to this problem, and lots of expensive ones too. All of the sensors mentioned can be cleaned for literally a couple dollars, don't replace those until you at least clean them and see if it makes a difference.

    Tps clean with carb cleaner
    maf clean with crc Maf cleaner
    iac clean with carb ccleaner
    throttle body plate clean with crc throttle body cleaner

    if you replace ALL of these sensors, your lookin at least a couple hundred dollars.
