Sounds like the transmission is not engaging. Check the fluid level first.

Checked that it was showing to much fluid which didn't make sense toe because I haven't put any in it

To check engine has to be warm, transmission in park, on a level surface with engine on.

Someone else also checked the fluid an said it smelled burnt

I figured its a transmission issue, I just don't know how to pinpoint the issue I've been told to check linkage cable, some sort of solenoid,a pump or the filter

is the fluid black and or brown? Have a local reputable trans shop look it over for you. How many miles on the Windstar? I suspect your in for a rebuild or replacement.
