Is your CEL (check engine light) on? It could be a lot of things.. You might have an injector that is slightly stuck open that might let fuel into a cylinder that could bog the engine enough to make it stall the first go around. You could use injector cleaner or seafoam in the fuel tank. But again, just guesses as there are so many sensors and things related. It might be your air flow sensor not reading correctly, enriching the fuel ratio and stalling the first time. Please keep us posted, maybe someone that knows more than me can help you ;)
