Next time, try this: Turn the key on for a couple seconds WITHOUT TRYING TO START THE ENGINE, then turn it off, then try to start it. Sometimes the fuel pressure leaks down overnight and it doesn't build up immediately when you try to start it. If it runs ok the rest of the time it might just be a slow leak in the fuel pressure regulator. If that's all it is, it won't affect the normal operation of the engine unless it gets a lot worse.

What would cause 1998 Chevy lumina to lose power after running for few minutes?

If the loss of power is sudden in only a few minutes, turn it off. If it starts back up and runs fine for a few minutes the loses power, it could be fuel starvation, check the fuel system for pressure, and change the fuel filter. If it starts up with the loss of power, and the engine has to cool down before it runs fine again it could be something electrical that is overheating and breaking down. Check the ignition coils.
