Take it to a big name trans shop and let them tell u whats wrong then fix it yourself if u can. If I started telling u to change things then it may cost u more money in the long run if its not your problem. Then again this has never been any trouble ive had so someone else may know better. But at any rate your best bet would be to know for sure whats wrong so u know what to do next.

A good place to bring it is miniekie They will tell you what the problem is and if u want them to fix it then they replace the broke parts with forged parts so that it wond break again and they waranty there stuff. sound like your first gear is shot and its starting in 2nd gear but Travos is right you should get it checked out first and fast before you ruin anything els cause if the first gear is broken or striped little peices could shred your gears. good luck hope this helps
