Transmission shifts late when cold.

(1999 Lexus LS400)
in Arlington, TX on September 23, 2012
I have been driving my LS 400 for about 11 trouble free yrs. 8-10,000 miles ago it began shifting late when cold. The dealer said the transmission filter needed to be changed so I had that done. No change in the shifting. Could this be a computer problem?

No not a computer problem. I would take to a transmission shop and have them check.
