    ^ my suggestion as well, with new cables and housing, without knowing more details.

    First thing to try is turning the cable barrel adjuster in about 1/2 to 1 turn.

    I'd first check that cable tension is adjusted optimally. If that doesn't fix the sifting problem then maybe new cables are the right choice.

    Yes, you can use the one on the shifter. Clockwise.
