Maybe 2nd gear is wearing out. But the problem I see with those the most is the valve body gets loose from vibration and just needs a little tightening down. You have to drop the transmission pan to do that and the transmission fluid filter. While you're there tightening the valve body you might as well change the transmission pan gasket and filter. I'm not sure of your mileage but maybe change the fluid.

No mileage, may be shot tranny, try Lucas trans fix last resort
