Default Engine surge

My engine has a surge everytime I stop . It surges from idle to about 1200 rpm Up and down. Runs smooth when on the road. I found a wire broken on my TPS a few days ago and the roughness I had went away when I repaired it, but now its surging . I can hold foot on gas pedal and it will idle fine but alone it surges and often stalls then restarts ok. Doesnt do it as bad when warm. Bad TPS?
I have new plugs,wires,cap etc.

Cleaned out the thing last night again. Let it drain all night. Used q-tips this morning to clean the thing. Re-installed it and started it up . Went for a ride and stopped at a light and I thought the engine stalled. I looked at the Tach and saw it was still running. I just couldnt hear it. Running great now. Many thanks .
