Sounds like it's time for a new clutch...

Edit: or it needs bled...

If it's just second then I think you have some sort of problem with the syncro on that gear. A completely different gearbox, but in the early eighties I owned a 1.6 guillietta which would not engage 2nd until I'd been driving for a couple of miles. Unfortunately if you can't live with it (I did!) then it's gearbox out and strip down I'm afraid. ££££! As you've checked the oil levels it's not that.
