Locksmith said DO NOT USE graphite.....
The locksmith said NOT to use graphite as it does gum up the works.
He said to use something like the Houdini product, (which, BTW, he did not charge me for spraying into my ignition nor did he pressure me to buy) should I ever notice the problem again. Funny thing is while he did sell the product, (it was $8.00 for a large spray can), when I got home, I'd found that I'd happened to have purchased a nearly full can at an estate sale for $.50 just because I wanted a spray lubricant available should I need it. The locksmith told me that locksmiths no longer use graphite at all as it makes the lock cyclinders sticky and dirt sticks to them then.
