Question 1999 Chrysler 300M: Has trouble after a hot soak

So I've had my $150 300M on the road for a few months, and I've noticed that if I let it sit after running it and try to restart it, sometimes it will start, stall, immediately restart, then run like crap until I rev it for a few seconds, then its as if nothing ever happened. Anyone else have this issue? 205,xxxmi.

Edit: There are no CEL codes stored

If it's not a pressure problem, the fuel rail could be partially emptying out either due to a leaking (dirty) fuel injector or two, or the check valve in the fuel pump. If so, when you start it, it sputters due to air in the fuel rail plus, in the case of leaking injector(s), raw fuel in the cylinder(s) with leaking injector(s). Sometimes running either Sea Foam or Techron thru a couple tanks of fuel will resolve the problem.

Where do I Seafoam a 2G 3.x motor for the induction cleaning?

I was talking about putting Sea Foam into the fuel tank. If you want to do a carbon clean out, you put it in through the plenum at a controlled rate at the little vacuum tee just above and slightly ahead of the throttle body. That doesn't accomplish the same thing as putting it in the fuel for injector problems.

X2 on the possibility of a leaky injector. I had a thread from a few years ago with a similar (perhaps exact) issue. I did the injector replacement route, IIRC.
