Use throttle body cleaner. Its an easy job, sure as heck wouldn't pay anyone to do it. I believe the dealers advise you not to do it yourself because you can damage sensors if you spray cleaner on them. But as long as you're careful it's easy. You can remove it to clean it or do it with it attached.
Should be something on wkjeeps.com:thumbsup:
