Default which one could it be?

ok i'm thinking from the habits my car has now formed that the MAF or TPS sensor is bad. it now likes too idle at 800, 1100, 1500 or 2000 RPM'* at any given time. My check engine lite is on and it seems to have a problem cooling it'* self down when in town. I couldn't get it below 230 degree'* while in town in rush hour traffic. If anyone has any advice on why or what caused this it would be much appreciated. I plan on taking it to advanced auto tommorow to pull the codes and hopefully it will tell me which one is the problem. I hope it'* the TPS cause it'* cheaper than the MAF.
