I press the accelerator but rpm does not goes beyond 3000. Even when I press the power shift it does not move.
i asked one local mechanic to check with diagnostic computer he told me the error was P0717 input/turbine speed sensor a circuit no signal.
also, there is check power train error whenever I start the engine.

It means that a signal is not being sent to TCM/PCM so will not shift right. The sensor could be bad or disconnected or poor contact. See picture, it is marked 440 in picture. Other one marked 10 is vehicle speed sensor.

Its' under the air cleaner if this is a 3.4L it should be scanned for codes first to see if the tcm is the problem or not it may be a shorted wire etc or what I said in previous reply.

I went to workshop area and when they scanned the whole car there were few codes which appeared in the diagnostic computer i.E. P700, P2190 & P2188 but not P0717 as last time. They asked that they have to open the gearbox as there is a problem there but I thought I should consult with you guys first.
Any suggestions?

2188 &90 are fuel correction codes because you have a misfire on cyl 4 (304) those will probably go away the other one is a/c problem of to low a voltage

Mechanics here are not able to diagnose the problem please can you show me a picture of TCm/Pcm it would mean alot if with exact location I really appreciate your help
As per I understand this is more like an electrical work rather than mechanical right? So should I go for car electrician?
What about the price of the module?

Mosudles can be bought new or rebuilt but have to be programmed to your car. A mechanic with a pro scanner should be able to fix this. It may not be the pcm also check battery for condition as a low batter will throw multiple codes. Both tcm and pcm are inside air cleaner double arrow in pic is tcm

The biggest thing is you have a misfire and that needs to be fixed as a lot of this stuff will straighten out once you do.
