Cool Throttle Body Issue???

I own a 01 Jeep Wrangler 4.0 (5-spd), I'm having a problem with the accelerator sticking. I spray out the throttle body and that helps short term, but now at times it's sticking at 5000 RPMs!!! Thats happened twice. Is this a throttle body problem or maybe a idel air intake problem??? I hear that a new throttle body is very expensive....any suggestions???

take it off and take it apart and clean it good, use some PB blaster first on all of the swiveling pieces and brake clean to get all the gunk out and to clean it. then put it back together and slap it on
