Exclamation Please help asap!!

Ok, so my 1998 5.9 is doing goofy stuff. This doesnt happen every day, but most. it will run fine for a few days then start acting up on my way home from work. It will run fine going down the road, but then sometimes at red lights it will want to die, punching the gas doesnt work,today it actually wanted to die while going down the road, as if the fuel/air mixture is bad? i have to turn the truck off, and restart which makes the truck run fine again. it wasnt throwing any kind of code until today, which was P0132, which is saying its running rich and pointing at the upstream o2 sensor, im planing on getting the sensor replaced tomoro, but what if thats not it?? im sick of putting money into it with no results.. please email me or post on here, sethmeyster@gmail.com . this is my only vehicle and i live 45 minutes from work, thus, i need a running vehicle..so please, any advice??? thanks tons!

recent fixes/"I thought that was the problem"... PCV, IAC, Plugs, Wires, been running 93oct fuel, ran seafoam through it.

if your running rich then id look at seeing the the coil or coil packs are breaking down. cougar in my driveway which is a customers has that problem.

ive had cases where that sounds like a bad fuel pump but it claims to run rich. sounds like loss of spark to me.
