SOURCE: Hard Shift to 2nd Gear/next gear
Your going to have to get your car scaned for codes. Auto Zone can scan it for you for free and tell your what you'll need to fix it.
It sound's like your VSS Sensor (speed sensor) is not working and your ECM is not getting the signal from the transmission to know when to shift the gears.
Becareful not to burn out the transmission till you get it fixed. The sensor it self is not that expansive and to replace it is easy and takes about 30 min to do.
If you get a P0720 or a P0722 code, then it's your speed sensor. It's an esy fix and Auto Zone can give you instrction on how to change it.
Good luck, it takes about 30 min to change and hope this helps.

Pull the distick and smell the oil. If it's discoloured (black or dark brown) you know the transmission friction plates are burnt and needs a rebuilt.

check your fuel pressure, should be 40lbs+ at idle. If you dont know how to do this, have a friend or a shop check it for you. I had same problem, no power at all would barely run ect,, turned out to be fuel pump.

O/D = overdrive if i remember right are the vacuum lines connected and not dry-rotted and the fluid levels are correct ...they may very well be right ...as far as the blinking it is a code and many places such as midas will do a readout for free or simply count the blinks and its usually 1 blink or 2 followed by a series of another blinks also it may give you more than one set of codes write them down and look them up on your computer
