Electronics are the most heat sensitive components, you have to test for spark when it shuts off. the fact that it will restart after a 15 minute cool down really sounds like ignition module

GM vehicles of that yea have had a couple of problems that will cause what you are stating, 1 Crankshaft sensor, 2 ignition module, 3 cam sensor, if you could get the codes pulled that might give you a starting point instead of just throwing parts on it.

Opti Spark did that to mine thanks to water from a flooded road. Changed it and it runs fine.
