04 siveradostartsruns for about 5 to 8 seconds then dies?

If your 2004 Silverado starts and runs for 5 to 8 seconds and then dies, you might have a bad fuel pump or clogged injectors. You could also have an issue with the distributor.

Could the distributor be the problem when the engine quits runnig every 15 seconds on a 3o2 efi engine?

If you are saying the engine starts and runs for 15 seconds and dies and then starts again for another 15 seconds and dies . . . the distributor seems to be doing its job. You might want to check if there is a fuel restriction somewhere (filter or pump).
