If it sounds like an airplane engine, suspect the wheel bearing. You absolutely can not tell which side is noisy except by running it in gear, jacked up, and listening with a stethoscope. What sounds like the right side can be a noisy left bearing.

If the oil light only comes on when the engine is warmed up it could be due to low pressure. It will be less likely to come on when the oil is cold because it is thicker. The sending unit could be defective too. The only way to know for sure is for your mechanic to install a mechanical oil pressure gauge to see what the actual oil pressure is. If the pressure really is low at idle, you can try one grade thicker oil at the next oil change.
