Default Bad fuel gauge & rough idle

I changed my TPS and cleaned my TB. I reconnected everything and started it up. Now i have what seems to be a misfire. My gas needle drops when i accelerate and goes up when i idle. I idle at 3rpm but when i push out my clutch a bit it drops to 2rpm. I cant go past 4rpm.. does anyone have an idea what it could be? Thank you in advance!

why did you change the tps? it probably now requires calibration ...

True, TPS is a the last part to remove when trying to fix something. Domin8, the last part of this video shows you how to calibrate your new one; I can't recall the specs, but perhaps they are on this site for your year and model. It's a little bit like setting your distributor up right for ignition timing that is in spec.
