Yup. The cable takes the place of that adjustable linkage. A good lubricant is Chrysler's MP-50. It looks and feels like WD-40 but that is a rust dissolver while MP-50 is more of a lubricant.
Activating the shift solenoids takes very little transmission fluid so a plugged filter will not cause shift timing problems. A plugged filter is more likely to cause slipping due to incomplete or slow application of the clutch packs.
With a sticking cable, you should also notice downshifts occurring too soon when slowing down.
