the tranny fluid should be changed every 60,000 miles. if you need to do it, look at the user manual it will show you which bolt is for which thing, there are two of them. one is for the filling, and the other is for draining. as for which type tranny fluid to use, ask around. i personnaly use honda tranny fluid.

P.S. if you do the tranny fluid swap and the second gear is still grinding no matter what, a couple of things, check your hydraulic fluid for your clutch, and if that's all good, your clutch may not be disengaging all the way.

for now you could always do the clutchless shift thing until you get the problem fixed. this will keep you from grinding the gears so often.
