My 01 Tacoma rolls over but won't start. New points and plugs about a month ago and 02 sensor replaced. Any ideas?

Something is getting confused because a 2001 Tacoma does not have (breaker) points. And at least 4 -- O2 sensors. Upstream and downstream on each bank

Maybe he said plugs only. And i don't know how many 02 sensors were replaced which ever was bad i suppose. Would that make my truck not start?

If your truck has a distributor then replace the cap and rotor as well when replacing spark plugs. If the wires are old then replace them too and make sure the correct wires go to each plug.

Absolutely correct. And a bad 02 sensor will not cause a no-start condition.

Absolutely correct. And a bad 02 sensor will not cause a no-start condition. Matter of fact Toyotas and some other cars are in 'open loop' upon cold start where the signals from the 02 sensors are ignored anyway, until they heat up to generate the proper voltage/signal then go to closed loop
