I have a 2004 with V6. I only have a problem at the gas pump after I refuel. Any other time it starts normally, never a problem. I pump gas to refuel, replace the gas cap, and make sure it clicks 3 or more times. Then when I try to restart the vehicle it will not start unless I pump the gas peddle and when the engine turns over keep it reved above 2000 rpms. If I do not keep the engine reved above abt 2000 rpm the engine will die. This situation only lasts for 1 or 2 minutes. After that everything is normal.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for your help.

sounds like your fuel pump check valve is bad - most often these are integrated into the fuel pump and not serviceable. To replace you have to drop the fuel tank and replace the entire unit. Alternatively you can do a couple of work arounds in the mean time:

1) install an inline-check valve on the fuel line between the tank and the motor. This will keep fuel pressure from dropping while starting.
2) turn key off, to on (but dont start) and back to off, then on (no start) a few times, which will make the fuel pump "pressurize" the line again, and then crank it after the 2nd or 3rd repetition.
