stutter throttle

My ride is an 09 voyager with 140k on the clock. No significant work done on it. Synthetic oil every 5-6000k (I know, maybe a bit to often). Recently has had a stutter at about 3000rpm. Feels like a starvation/flooding problem. No smell of to much fuel. Once you open throttle completely, stutter disappears. Would some sea foam or ignition cleaner be an idea? Also cleaned out air breather in case it was clogged (it wasn't).
Any ideas before I take it in to dealer.
Thanks in advance

Clean the Throttle body on the right side, pull the cover and clean the butterfly good, I bet this helps.
I have had to do that once and it really smoothed it out
