The throttle position sensor should be located on the side of the throttle body or on the fuel injection pump. If it is one of the models on the throttle body it will be attached at the end of the throttle shaft. If the engine is setting code 24 and idles erratically that is the problem. If it is setting a different code tps is not the problem

Stalls intermittently, wrench icon lights up under tach.

Problem with the electronic throttle control .
It should be noted that the ETC system includes a wrench light on the instrument cluster that illuminates when a fault is detected. Faults are also accompanied by DTCS and the "Check Engine Soon" light. Your best bet is to take your vehicle to a reputable ASE certified repair shop .
Overview The Generation II (Gen II) Torque Based Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) is a hardware and software strategy that delivers a transmission output shaft torque (via throttle angle) based on driver demand (pedal position). It utilizes an electronic throttle body, the PCM and a accelerator pedal assembly to control throttle opening and engine torque. The ETC system basically replaces the standard cable operated accelerator pedal, idle air control (IAC) motor, 3-wire throttle position sensor (TPS) and mechanical throttle body .

could be a bad power steering pressure sensor . This sensor inputs a signal to the PCM - engine computer when low speed an higher load on the engine ,such as turning , in return the PCM is suppose to raise the idle so it won't stall .

Car stalls in idle and only goes when you give it gas other wise it will stall

Sounds like a bad throttle positioning sensor. Does the check engine light come one? I'm willing to bet it's the throttle pos sensor. Go to Autozone and have them run the trouble code if the check engine light is on, it's free :-)

Replace the throttle position sensor then. Am pretty certain that's the problem.

You might have it checked for codes too. Sometimes codes are stored that do not cause a CEL, but give clues as to what is failing.

Idled high, replace IAC and PCV, now idles low and stalls

May be a defective IAC, or bad connection, or improperly installed, as in lost little "O" ring when putting it on. I would also be looking at TP sensor, which I would have tested in the first place. Have you tried cycling your key to retrieve problem codes yourself? ( turn key to on,(not start) then off, then on, then off, then on again, and leave on, and count flashes of check engine light. It will flash quick, then pause, then flash again. For example: 3 flashes, pause, then 3 more is code 33. 2 flashes, pause, 5 more, is code 25. When you get 5, pause 5 more, that code 55, which means end of message. Write them down, and get back to us with what you have if any.

Check engine light flashing

Whenever the "Check Engine" light comes on, there is always a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) stored in the ECM (Engine Control Module). You'll need an OBDII (On-Board-Diagnostics) scanner to retrieve any codes recorded/set in ECM. Once you do this and let us know what, if any codes are set, then we can go from there. Could be ignition, fuel, vacuum leak, throttle position sensor, crank position sensor, etc., etc., etc.

Gas tank very low, just filled with plus gas, now hesitating

The throttle position sensor may be wet. Several auto parts places like autozone or murrays or o'reillys will check this for free and test the computer in your vehicle for the check engine light.
