Auto Gearbox won't engage.

Hi Guys, I'm a newbie to the forum and I'm pleased to have found you. I have just purchased a secondhand 1999 Gen3 Outback (auto). My problem is that when I reverse and donot brake but slide the sifter straight into drive, the gearbox won't select drive (ie the vehicle will not move forward), I sit there as if the car is in neutral. I can have the same problem occaisionlly when I first start the car in the morning. It can take any where from a few seconds to engage to 5 or 10 minutes and it only seems to work if I select first and rev the engine. A friend suggested a solinoid. If anyone has any thoughts on this I would be gratefull.
