Suggestion is to remove tps again as iirc it kind of fits slightly off kilter to where the throttle body sits if you know what I mean

Sounds like you have a vacuum leak. When the engine is cold the leak is there but as the engine warms up the parts start to expand thus closing the gaps and sealing the leak. I had this problem on my personal vehicle and it turned out to be lower intake gaskets.

My 91 Nissan Maxima when idling in park or nuetral revs up and down. Then when it is in gear it revs up high like I am pushing on the gas. I have changed the throttle position sensor and that did not fix...

Check for any air leaks between the mass airflow meter and the engine like the rubber being split on the air intake boots etc.. I once had a toyota that would do the same thing and the fix for that was to flush the coolant passages in the throttle body, worth a try. Also you said you replaced the TPS. If the TPS has slotted holes you must set the minimum TPS volts or that can also cause idling issues. Clean the throttle body as well.

Do you mean start the car in drive? if so that problem is inhibitor switch. Other shift problems can be caused by TPS (throttle posistion sensor) if applicable

I have a 1997 chrysler intrepid sport with a 3.5l engine im haveing issues with it idling high i have cleaned and rreplaced the iacv it still is running high all the vaccum lines are all good no cracks...

it could be the tps, that is a prime candidate if the IAC is good-and you can check the intake for leaks (common on 3.5's) by taking a spray can of throttle body cleaner and spraying around the base of the intake runners, and the throttle body - listen for changes in idle while doing this.
