The O2 sensor is mounted to the exhaust; you'll need to get under the truck (jack-stand please) to locate. If it sits where a 89-92 sits it will be in the exhaust under the passenger side. Follow the wiring, on most it carries over the transmission to a wiring block under the driver's sie of the truck (again this is all under the truck) As for the low idle I do not believe there is anything to be change. If the idle is low it is due to other conditions... injectors, sensor, low compression, timing or such.
I hope this may have helped,

This is very clear, replace the o2 sensor that so important to the fuel mixture and idle and etc, you first need to replace that o2, then reset the codes and run it, if that sensor is shorting and killing the 5 volt ref signal to other sensors or computer it will run like sh***t, start there that may be your only problem, depending on how long that sensors been bad you may have cat converter damage, but thats next, hope this helps.

It has idle problems when i stop at a red light

If it has an idle problem of idling too high, then you may have a bad O2 sensor. This will feel like your car is hitting the accelerator while you are stopped. If it is too low, you may just need to adjust the fuel at idle speed.

The idle speed is computer controled, it is not adjustable, you most likely have sludge in the throttle valve and the idle speed control air bypass valve, clean them with carb spray with the engine running.
