It could be the fuel filter too. Try to replace fuel filter 1st.

My 2004 ford explorer was running fine it started missing lights went off and now willnot start or turnover

You need to find out what is missing Fuel or ignition. and repair the issue.. you do this by cranking it and seeing if there is any spark going to spark plugs.. if you have spark you will need to see if you have fuel pressure. easy way is to squirt a little fuel into throttle body and see if fires .. if it does then you are missing fuel.. Then you need to find out if it is a fuel pump relay, fuel pump, or possibly something as simple as a clogged fuel filter. When yyou turn the key to on yyou may be able to hear the fuel pump come on for 1-2 seconds to charge the system. The fuel pump is in the gas tank.. so listen and see if tiu can hear it.. some time the pump will run but not pump fuel.

97 lumina, 3.1. Starts runs smooth, drive for 30

I just recently have been fighting the same problem with the same make/model/year vehicle. For myself, I would drive off and on through the day and it would run fine. Then suddenly after a start it would run rough and die. I would have to wait 20 to 60 mins before it would start again. I had it checked and fuel pump was only putting out around 19 psi. It should be around 41 psi. Had fuel pump replaced and no more problems. Furthermore, now it runs so much better. It's funny how over time I didn't notice how the performance was slowly degrading. Unfortunaley fuel pumps for this car run around $300.

97 lumina car runs great. today I ran it and when

No it doesn't have fuel. What test did you do.? The fuel filter is dirty or the fuel pump is mechanically bound once in awhile.

It will start up but then start popping and stop running

Fuel is not continuously supplied in the line to prolong hte combustion cycle. There are 2 possible causes:
1- Fuel filter is clogging up preventing fuel supply to the fuel distributor. 2- Fuel pump is weak not delivering fuel at certain rate for the needed supply.

96 chevy lumina fuel pump changed now won't start

After you put the new fuel filter back in, make sure your fuel pump is actually pumping, either by listening for it to start when you turn the key on or by cracking the fitting at the fuel rail (after disconnecting your ignition hot lead first) I assume that you have checked the fuse/relay... rick
