just bought this agila, when engine has warmed up and ticking over, the oil light comes on. As soon as apply revs the oil light goes off. Any ideas? Is this right?

Don't use it,most probable is it's the oil pump but if it's been run like that then the mains,big ends or cam could be suspect.
I have one in right now,not a Corsa but the owner didn't pay attention to either of the warning lights,I have had to get the crank reground to 0.75 smaller to loose the scoring,owner is going to end up with a huge bill,all for the sake of £20 worth of oil,complete engine rebuild.

If no engine rattles or rumbles may just be faulty oil pressure switch .
