My 1989 pontiac grand prix keeps stalling once it is warmed up after about 15 minutes of idle.

No, not the oxygen sensor. A couple of things you need to make clear. What light flickers, then stays on? That can't be a sensor light, it would have to be the "check engine light" or an engine temperature light (for like when your cluster has no temperature gauge, but just the "red light").
At any rate, the sensor you changed is not the engine temp. sending unit for the instrument panel. I believe on your '89 there would be two sensors for temp. One is the CTS for the engine computer, and the other is a sending unit for the dash, probably a 1 wire connector. It could be at fault, but it wouldn't cause stalling, I do not think anyway.
If it stalls and won't restart until cooled, this is a symptom of loss of ignition (spark) caused by either a faulty coil, or faulty Ignition Control Module (the coil controller), or last a faulty Crank Position Sensor (this sensor used by computer to determine ignition spark timing). You could test if ignition is lost, by checking for spark right after the engine warms and then stalls. If you have no spark to a spark plug right after it stalls, this is the reason for stalling. Usually it is the crank sensor, rather than the ignition control module or an ignition coil. Your car has 3 coils anyway in a "coil pack", so if one coil went bad, you'd still have two good coils, but engine would only be firing on four of the six cylinders-could easily stall a car.
You should check for trouble codes whenever you have a problem. A code might have been set. Easy to check for codes on your car, just ask if you don't know how-only takes a jumper wire or even a paper clip works. good luck.

I have a 1989 jeep wrangler 2.5l it started stalling so i replaced the ignition coil hoping that would help but its still stalling

Could be an intermitant problem with the ignistion module. Auto Zone can test them for free.
Also if you have an alarm that disables the vehicle, that could be an issue as well. I have seen many, Many alarms go bad and cause this.

Check for voltage at the positive side of the ignition coil (12Volts). You will not get a good test if the points are closed. Odds are you need points and a condensor in the ditributer. Lee

I have a 89 ford e250 5.0 automatic. it has power going to the coil but no spark. it did this the other day and i unplugged it tapped on it then it worked. the ditributer is turning.

the most common failure on this system is the TFI ignition module and the distributor pickup, also the coils are suspect if the outside of the coil is dark or burned looking or the tower under the coil lead is white with a chalky residue, the ign modules failed so much there was a class action law suit on them.I am a 25 year veteran ford dealer tech so have done 100's of these no spark repairs.
