I have been using silicone spray. Seems to work great although , You need to use it often. But it doesn't seem to build up like some other lubes out there.

Motorcycle cable lube works well; just make sure it's good quality. (it's silicone)

White lithium grease is good for the connections at the ends; be sure to clean out the old grease first. (light grease, not thick grease.)

WD40 will wash away all the lube, dry out, and let stuff rust. It's a solvent and drying agent, not a lube.

Be careful what you spray down with WD and forget about, lol.

I just want to add that those little plastic slides (in the console, around the shifter handle itself) can make things difficult if they're gummed up.

I have to take mine out every 4 months or so to get a good cleaning.

check the shifter assembly. on either side there are plastic tabs that slide back and forth when you shift. The tabs usually break on the top. If you pop the plastic center console plastic piece off you can see the shifter mechanism. It may be broken. I have had to change 2/3 of my birds shifters over the years.
