I would check the crankshaft and camshaft sensors. I don't think the connections are wrong, they really only go on 1 way.

My 1989 Cadillac Brougham 307 starts up and pulls off but doesn't go more than 15 miles or so...replaced ignition coil and alternator, wire, spark plugs.Could it be my fuel pump is bad..?

There is another ignition module in your distributor that should have been changed when you were doing tune up. Try that first, then you can check fuel pressure to see if pump OK.
Another problem with these cars, was the catalytic converter plugging up.

Hard start, then after that starts fairly fast. Is a sign that the check ball in the fuel system quit working. Try turning the key on 2 or 3 times at first start and see it that helps. This turns on the pump and pressures up the line. I would personally live with it until the fuel pump dies. They are both on the same unit in the tank and you can't replace the checkball.

My 92 olds 88 royale will go for a few minutes then just die and sometimes wont start back for hours!!

check your wiring harness that plugs into the coil pack and see if the wires are melted or showing. i have a 92 and the wires melted together and it was doing the same thing and it also could be your coilpack or your ignition control module (icm)
