ok ive replaced the ignition module with a ac delco unit, replaced the ecm, replaced the cam and crank sensor, all in a attempt to stop my riviera from randomly shutting off, usually as i stop but sometimes while driving, will usually crank right back up but sometimes have to wait hours before it will restart..any ideas ?

Maybe try using the spare key if you have one...I've heard that the chip in the key wears over time causing ignition to shut off.
