I've got a really weird problem goin on. When i start my car up after being hot and sitting for like 20-25 mins it idles really low and dies almost immediatly unless i pump the gas and keep it at like 3k rpms for 60 secs. If i start it up 5-10 mins after being hot it idles fine, and if i let it sit for 45 mins to an hour it idles fine too.... whats up ??
 
Partial vapor lock in the fuel system?

If you live in a cold climate does this occur in the winter as well?

Edit: Just saw you live down the street in Dayton.
