chek engine, hard to start after fill up

2007, 5.7, 51K miles

So about a week ago, the check engine light comes on one morning at first start up.........prio to this never a problem, truck starts fine. I go to fill up and after I fill up, the truck doesent want to start. I try 2-3 times, finally I give it some gas, pumping the peddle, and it starts, but a little rough (check engine light still on), I drive off and all is well, truck start just fine every time.

Yesterday I go to fill up, (check engine light still on, been on all week, just have not had the time to take it in) after fill up same thing, wont start, untill I pump the peddle a bit, idles rough, but fine after I start rollin..............

I plan taking a day off this week to take it in, anyone have any idea?

when I fill up, the tank is near dead empty, low light is on, I have always done this though.

thanks guys.

I've had a couple issues with the truck not wanting to start myself. It cranks but won't start. Both times was after a 30 minute drive shut the truck off for about 10 minutes came back out and it wouldn't start. Shut the key off waited a couple seconds and then it started. Dealer couldn't find a problem with mine. However I didn't have a check engine light on though, so your may be a fuel cap realted issue.

Don't pump the pedal. With a FI engine all you are doing is flooding it

I know gas cap seems likly, but not so sure, Im an ex chevy guy, that required the gas cap to be clicked 5-6 times, I still have that habbit, and only one is required.............

and shouldnt the light reset its self after conformation of the gas cap on tight? I checked the cap, removed and reinstalled, light never went out

Cant remember who it was, but someone had a problem with throwing codes and it turned out to be the gas cap.

If the code is caused by a loose gas cap, it will take several start-stop cycles for the check engine light to clear after the problem has been remedied. Go to an auto parts store. Most will pull your CEL code for free.

hmm gas cap wont account for rough starting

im wondering if your fuel pump is going out.
you should really get that code checked before driving for a week. if its fuel related and your engine is running lean, bad juju could happen.
