    oil light coming on after car warms up would indicate that the motor is probaly toast and on its last leg that light dosent come on till the pressure is below like 3psi or some thing


    it only does it when it warm because the oil gets thin as it warms up and the bearings are to loose to hold pressure

    dont waste the money, for less then 1000$ you can have a new motor ( less then 55k) for what you spend for gaskits,rings, new rods, new crank, all the seals and bearings new head studs, its cheaper and easier to do a swap.
