      Remove the cable from its tubing and lube it with any oil. Try not to use WD 40 as it will dry up pretty quick. Clean engine oil is ok. Three in one is ok. Cable is jumping because there is no lube in the tube it rides in. It's amazing what a little oil will do. Silicone would be good too.

      Cable needs lube or replacement and lube.
      They can go on quite a while like that before twisting up and tearing themselves apart, but I wouldn't count on it.
