everytime I open my hood the damn thing wont latch for about 4 hours. after which the cable would slowely work its way back out and the hood would then latch. I (on some one elses advice) sprayed a bunch o napa brand penetrant into both ends of the cable tube and worked it back and forth and that seemed to make it worse as it has been sitting for 2 days and still hasn't worked it's way out yet so the hood still wont latch. I live in MN and it's like 20 outside so Im wondering if the penetrant seized up due to the cold???? So any suggestions on what I should use to lube this thing?? something like graphite maybe? or am I gonna have to replace the whole sbebang???
