HONDA CIVIC TRANSMISSION PROBLEM

1996 Honda Civic • 300,000 miles

I have a 1996 Honda Civic EX 1.6 L with an Automatic transmission. The problem I'm having is the transmission absolutely will not engage at random times. What we're experiencing is that it will start up fine and go shifting normally, sometimes a few feet sometimes a few miles, but at random times it just stops pulling all together no matter what gear you are in we get nothing not even a budge. We turn the car off let it set for about 5 minutes or so start it up shift to neutral then to drive and its ready to go again sometimes for a few feet or sometimes a few miles. We did notice a buzzing noise coming from the linear solenoid could that be a sign that it is faulty and causing the symptoms we are having? We did remove the linear solenoid and inspect it but we haven't done a resistance test on it and we are having trouble finding one somewhere in stock they wanted a $195 for one at the Honda dealership! Please help if you can we need this thing fixed ASAP thanks a lot in advance!
