For what it's worth, I've noticed from time to time some slight difficulty with second gear, although seldom. And I have never used synthetics.

I was having difficulty with 2nd gear as well. I would shift it would either not fully lock into place...or slip right back out, causing me to free rev while expecting a surge forward. I changed out the shifter seal, and the issue completely went away.
