Loss of Throttle

After starting, the throttle cuts out intermittently. This usually works itself out after a min or two. If I press the throttle further, it becomes slightly more responsive. but has a distinctively rich smelling exhaust.
This remains fine until the ignition is shut off and started again.
I believe it may be the TPS. However, would it not be persistent throughout instead of just a mile or two into a trip?

probably leaky hose between MAF and throttle plenum.

Coolant temp sensor. Not the one that does the gauge ... The other one.
