Check the clutch hydraulic system first. If clutch pedal resistance is felt only very low, that could be the cause of the problem.
Check the gear shift cables as well. They could be out of adjudtment or worn.
When trying to engage 2nd, does it clash while trying to shift or you are not able to move into position? It could also be a fault with the transmissionitself whereby the synchroniser is bad. Did you try replacing the transmission gear oil?
