1999 Chrysler Concorde 3.2 LXi, 170,000mi Will do this several (up to 10) times before it will stay running.
only when the engine is cold-starts then dies may run for a second or several seconds after several attempts it will run fine also after it's warm idles low in drive 500-600rpm.

What is the actual pressure?

It may be loosing its prime, and taking time to pressure up the system.

Pressure is 50psi-comes right up when key turned to "on" and stays there even during a stalling event
