Throttle body is the part where the throttle cable ends. Inside is a plate that opens to allow more air to go through. When the sides are dirty, air passage is restricted and the idling speed would drop or be eratic.
Spray some carb cleaner into the throttle body and use a tooth brush to brush the inner bore with throttle plate fully opened. Use a rag to wipe it dry.
Starting of engine would be difficult until the carb cleaner dries out.
Throttle body cleanig would not be found in shop manuals so don't be surprised.
