1996 C 280 Throttle Body Cleaner

Hi all,
This is my very first post in this fine forum. I happen to have a 1996 C 280 Benz since 1996 (new) I now have 168 K miles. I am having symptoms of loud humming breathing noise upon starting the engine, I immediately turn off the engine and restart and the noise goes away, and so I took it to my mechanic. I need a Throttle Body overhaul, I do not know what does this means, but I remember back in 1972 when I was 17 I purchased a brand new Chevelle Malibu and used to clean my carburator with a spray, Is this the same spray to use now on my C 280? and where is my Throttle body in my Mercedes? I know I do not have a carburator now, but where does the spray go? I am a newbie and an old timer, sorry for my ignorance, but I need some clarity here. I am willing to attempt to spray it myself first, if that fails then I will take it to the shop, I want to keep my Mercedes. Thanks in advance.
