your tranny is shot, most likely the clutch packs in there, mine has gone out four times, first three times they rebuilt it and it just goes again, buy a factory rebuilt one from gm with a warranty. im on that one and it is having less problems, going to have it replaced again though because it just did what your talking about briefly again last week. i ****ing hate these tranny's dude, there ****. sorry about the cussing but i cant believe these dumbasses havent recalled these trannys or the stupid differentials

Did it do it before or after the fluid change? The A4 tranny have servos that contol gear shifts. They maybe just dirty or sticking. Also there is a TCM that control those servos too, have the car checked by someone that can run a diagnostic on the tranny before anything else.

Hopefully its nothing too serious. You may just need to take her out and stretch her legs, give her a good shake down.
