Just one question. Anybody tried to put oil or wd40 on the hood release cable between left and right hood latch? Coz my right side hood latch won't lock only the left side. I think the cable between left and right latch is the problem, before buying a new cable just wanna know your opinions if putting lubricant on the cable might do the trick. :)

If the cable is the problem lubrication may do the work. The best is to remove the cable, hold it up right and lubricate it. I will use wd40, silicon spray, but not Oil. Using oil in the future will add to the problem. Also try to move the cable without changing the adjustments to the latches if possible.
