It could be the PCM or the something with your trans itself.

This is not really possible to diagnose until add'l data is known and then supplied to us here. Plug in a code reader and read fault codes, that is a must, cannot be skipped. If I understand your details correct, you are saying that you begin accelerating from a stop and it feels {normal} until the transmission begins to upshift to 2nd gear and then the engine stalls out (you have to restart it?) - is that what you man to say? Please expand the details a bit more. Make me feel like I am there.
