If the transmission neutralizes when you come to a stop, and will only move by shifting to second gear, then that means that the 1st gear clutch piston is cracked. This is a very common problem with the Windstars. Solution is to have the transmission repaired and have the aluminum piston replaced with an updated piston.

My gears want move in drive or reverse but will if I put in 3rd gear then drive once driving tranny shifts smoove could that be a bad module


If you can get it to work right by doing that (shift threw all gears), then it isn't the module. I would start with checking ground points. Battery to body, battery to engine and engine to body. These are cables. Then there are 1 or 2 grounds on the engine from the harness and a couple on the transmission. If these check out, then I would say you have a bad harness in the transmission. Goes to the solenoid pack/ valve body.
