not a good idea to use oil or grease.check to see if it has been crimped and if not try a graphite lube like lock ease.oils will attract dirt and it my be cheap to replace

if you are intent on using a penetrate, hold one end higher, make a paper cone, tape it off to the cable and let mean old mr. gravity slowly drip through
