If it won't start, it's not the O2 sensor. That sensor isn't used until the engine warms up and the ECU goes into a closed loop condition. -- If it won't start you can't take it anywhere to get it scanned. If you can get a scanner, check the trouble codes and post them here. -- Try some starting fluid down the intake to see if it needs fuel or spark.
