1990 towncar

I have a 1990 towncar with 5.0 engine aod transmission. park, n, r all work as they should. When I put it in od it will shift 1st then 2nd just fine but it goes into nutreul after that. If I put it into 3 it will not go up from 2nd. I was told both 3rd and od was out. But it doesn't make since, why don't it try to go into 3rd? I checked the outside of the shift cable it looks ok. It is over full by 2 or3 qaurts but I was told that wouldn't cause it. My wife overfilled it. Is there something inside that would cause this? it started to do this at once. Please help if can
