If the car is running too rich it will choke itself and stall . You will have to check for the cause of the rich mixture and rectify it before further faults develop .

What year and engine is it? The O2 sensor wouldn't be intermittant. Check for poor wire connections, vacuum hose problems. etc. Also clean the MAF with MAF cleaner.
