One reason a 1993 Chevy Lumina may turn over but not start could be the battery. It may also be the spark plugs.
Try adding more gas
A 1997 Chevy Lumina with a 3.1 that will not start, turns over, and doesn't spark; most likely has a defective ignition system. The coil may be damaged or wire providing power could be damaged.
Turn ignition on but do not start engine, depress accelerator to the floor three times within 5 seconds, oil change light should flash 5 times, oil change light is reset if you did this correctly.
your key is probably wore out and tumblers are not moving
Install a manual gauge to check actual pressure or try Replacing oil sending unit
Most oxygen sensors are either on the exaust headpipe just after the manifold or on the manifold. I don't know where it is exactly on the Lumina but that is where you should start looking.
If there is no check engine light illuminated, start with the basics like a good tune up.
