Assuming this is an automatic transmission, odds are you have lost a band in your transmission, this will require a rebuild,  you may also notice it will fail to shift into high gear as well?

You have too much fluid in the transmission. Park on level ground. After a 15 min drive. Leave engine running. Set parking brake. Transmssion in neutral. Check tranny fluid. A cup or more over will cause this. Better to have less than too much. Drain at least a full 1 leter bottle. Go for drive check it again. As above.

The transmission on my 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue had worked perfectly and then I had noted that the transmission only worked in 1st, 2nd, and reverse gears. When I try to put the transmission into drive,...

The transmission fluid, filter, shift solenoid needs to be inspected.That might be causing this problem of transmission not going in drive mode with gas pedal pressed down.------- The transmission needs to be taken apart and inspected, may be solenoid not opening/ closing properly or gears dried up and fluid is required. first inspect the transmission fluid and filter.if fluid is low, get the fluid changed and if filter is dirty, get it replaced.but if problem is same, then transmission needs to be torn out and inspected internally for worn out solenoids and clutch plates and valves.--------- this will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Whats wrong with my windstar I put it in reverse or drive gear step on the gas and the engine just goes but does not move

Check the transmission fluid level. If it's full you probably have a serious transmission or driveline problem

PNRD Red light bilnking in the panel

I don't know if your experiencing any problems with your transmission shifting or problems going into any gears presently but the pnrd (park, neutral, reverse, drive) light represents a design in the transmission which puts it into a limp mode when there is a problem present. You could have a problem with a solenoid or even low fluid (transmission is in a sealed unit and has no dipstick to check though) The only way to tell if fluid is full is to har car sitting perfectly level when its at normal operating temp and to fill fluid through the fill hole underneath until fluid comes back out. To have it serviced someone would need a vagcom to test for codes in the transmission control unit or check with your dealer. Sometimes you can turn the car off and back on and the light will reset but if it does it frequently I'd get it checked out asap
