I would say the car is not getting any fuel. you could try replacing the fuel filter which is cheap. It could also be the fuel pump which is probably in the tank.(try tapping the gas tank with a hammer lightly) If the car starts then it is probably the pump. The last thing i think it could be is that is isn't getting any spark. Take the spark plug wire off the plug itself and put a screwdriver in the hole and make sure it is touching the metal part of the plug. Have someone try to start the car and hold the screwdriver near a piece of metal, if you see a blue spark then the car is getting spark, if you see nothing then you probably have a bad coil.
Check all the plugs most of time one of the points is not making contact and no spark will hit on newer vehicles if all cylinders are not getting spark your engine will turn until the battery is dead..if points are not clean 1 cylinder will not fire and it will not start check points and plugs and it will fire right up

Why wont your Chevy truck crank after you just had your oil changed?

"Crank" meaning the starter doesn't crank the engine over to start it, changing the engine oil should have nothing to do with it not starting. If the battery was weak and something was left on, it may have run the battery down. Also check the engine oil level to be sure they put new oil back in or possibly left the drain plug loose and the oil drained out. If the engine was run with no oil in it, it could have seized the engine and it wouldn't crank over, in which case the engine is ruined.

What is the difference between engine turn over vs start?

"TURNING OVER AN ENGINE" REFERS TO ROTATING THE CRANKSHAFT, USUALLY BY MEANS OF THE STARTER MOTOR AND THE RING GEAR, IF IT WAS AN OLDER ENGINE YOU COULD USE THE CRANK HANDLE THOUGH THESE WENT OUT OF FASHION DUE TO HIGHER CRANKING SPEED BEING REQUIRED TO START AN ENGINE. PUSHING THE VEHICLE (IF IT WAS MANUAL) WHILE IN GEAR WOULD ALSO TURN THE ENGINE OVER BUT MAKE SURE THE IGNITION WAS SWITCHED OFF UNLESS YOU WANT IT TO START.
