Ignition tumbler sometimes won't turn. Tried other keys and graphite lube. Also silicone lube. Reinserting and wiggleing key will allow it to turn. Can tumbler be fixed or replaced to use the same keys?

It's the lock assembly.
It will require some special tools and you can reuse your existing tumbler.
