If it pops out of 2nd it can be a bent shift rod, a worn synchro or the shifter itself. Normally these have to beopened up to find the real problem. Try putting it in reverse with the engine off, if it does that and stays in then it may be a clutch adjustment or clutch problem. Best thing is have a pro give his opinion on it.

The guy took it to a pro and they said it was
a pin in the shift tower or slipped fork

Yes it cold be that as well or worn out shift tower. You'll have to remove it to look at it.

It ended up to be a broken pin in the shift tower

Then loosen it a bit and see what happens. The pin may be soft that you are putting in also. Another thing ifyou switch to synthetic oil for the trans( assuming it's manual) then it will shift much easier.
