Question about 1996 Chevrolet Lumina Mini
If you didn't remove and replace the plugs one at a time, then you may have installed the wires out of order. I don't know the order for your motor by heart but you should be able to look it up on the internet. Bad plug wires or plug wires that are not seated on the plug securely can also cause a misfire. I would check the wires by twisting the boot slightly then pulling it out. Be sure that you hear a "pop" sound as you press on the boot. Then you know it is properly secured to the plug.

Inspect for the correct routing of the spark plug wires. Improper routing may cause cross-firing. Inspect each wire for any signs of cranks or splits in the wire. Inspect each plug wire boot for tearing, piercing, arcing, carbon tracking or a corroded terminal.
If there is any corrosion, carbon tracking or arcing indicated on a plug wire boot or terminal, both the plug wire and component it was connected to should be replaced.
