Auto throttle cleaned and how to initialization

If you used spray cleaner on the throttle plate or into the bore, you may have damaged the gears or motor in the throttle body. The vehicle shouldn't need any further initialization unless the throttle body has been replaced or the powertrain control module has been reprogrammed or replaced.

The idle has an intermittant stumble

Your Idle Air Control (IAC) valve may be dirty with carbon, simple fix with throttle body cleaner through the IAC passageway through the throttle body. Make sure it's throttle body cleaner and not carburetor cleaner, the carb cleaner is to corrosive to the gaskets used on the throttle body.
If cleaning the IAC does not help, then it's a good chance that the IAC is to far gone and will need to be replaced.
Good luck and thank you for using fixya

2002 Saturn Vue V6 Loss of Power

Yup. The throttle body connectors have a history of failing on these cars. Replace the throttle body and the wire connectors that go to it, and you're back in business. Not terribly difficult and you can get the parts from any dealer. Saturn actually has a bulletin out on this problem but they won't cover it unless you're under warranty - no recall for this.
