Suggest checking if any codes are stored. Wouldn`t be surprised if you have an 0340 lurking somewhere (cam sensor)

Did the mechanic check the ATF level the correct way: with the engine running (etc.)?

Isn't it 'normal' for the Omega to hang on to a low gear from a cold start, mine does? :-\

Sir, I mean when the gbox is in the powerless, It will not sound normal and sport mode can't be engaged. and u cud feel that the gbox is not working normally,mainly in D.

You're car feels gutless cos there's a fault of some sort (not always on the gearbox) and the car is setting off in 3rd gear - you'll not be getting top either.
