Auto parts stores sell the stuff too; probably a good bit cheaper.
It looks somewhat like the throat of a carb. Just a wide, open hole with a plate at the bottom.
Warm the engine. Take the duct work loose, or off.
Spray a little cleaner around inside the hole.
Let it sit for 15 seconds or so and then start the engine.
Spray some more around in the hole; not too much.
Shut off engine.
Repeat once more.
DO NOT STICK A RAG OR ANYTHING ELSE IN THERE.
P.S. While having the dealership do this costs a good bit more, giving the "technician" a chance to inspect the throat and other associated parts is worth something. They might notice another problem that you would miss.
