Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Intrigue
Starts up and makes a terrible noise coming from the transmission. Will not shift into drive or reverse, but neutral and park work. Changed out the Filter and fluid and still nothing.
Look for a re-built replacement tranny. probably cheaper than having yours re-built. also, could be problem with electronics. won't be cheap, either way! get a couple estimates- from shops you trust-ask your friends for recommendations! depending on mileage, and other 'little problems', you may want to consider a newer used vehicle. i know (believe me!) times are tough- but a car that won't go is useless! if you can get it fixed for a reasonable price, and it's otherwise in good condition, get it fixed! make sure you maintain it (oil change, fluid checks, brake replacements,timing belt replacements,etc.) then repairing or replacing the tranny may make financial sense. do the math!

Sounds like you have either got pump troubles Forward and reverse But could also be the Bands are worn out,,but both to go togeather is most unlikely unless you have been foot on throttle and foot on brake ...
Was the oil in trans when you drained it dark RED or even Black if so then the bands are burnt out you will do the same thing if you TOWED THE CAR AT MORE than 6 MPH for more than 1mile as it reverses the pump flow and the bands burn out
