What code set, and do you have scan data showing what the TPS voltages are during throttle movement?
Depending on the design many TPS sensors are part of the throttle body itself and the entire assembly needs to be replaced and there is probably a relearn routine that must be performed. Consult service information for specific instructions for your car or take it to a qualified shop.
We wentto auto zone and had the diag. check done. And it came up for the throttle body sensor. We just change thatnout less than a month ago. Now its dieing when the clutch is engaged to stop or slow down to turn. Has no power can barely get up to 50. Smoking tailpipe and is consuming fuel at an abnormal rate.

That makes for a very different picture than your first post. You need to have this diagnosed by a shop. Pulling codes is the first step but the codes don't always add up to telling you what part to replace.
