2000 zx3 won't idle, sometimes


My daughters 2000 ZX3 runs fine most of the time. But occasionally, after being driven for a while and shut off and restarted it will not idle and die. You can keep it running by applying a little pressure to the gas peddle. If you wait about 45 min to an hour usually it will run normally again.

It seems totally random. sometimes it will not do it for weeks or months (the longer times between events are in the winter).

My scanner can only read codes, it can't read things like fuel pressure and real time data. No Codes are set.

Any ideas?
