    You really need professional help. Unless you are experienced, it is above your pay grade.

    That boiler may be older than you.

    Replacement should be considered because the cost of repair to that antique won't improve your system but a new boiler and an increase of efficiency will add to the savings.

    Icesailor is giving you the best advice

    If you just can not afford to replace the boiler then contact a reputable company to make this repair. You will still be wasting oil but your home will be safe.

    If you can afford an upgrade than this is a blessing in disguise. You will be amazed on how much money you save on oil with the new equipment available today. Triple pass boilers, indirect water heaters, out door temperature reset and cold start technology is the way to go. BTW, get a heat loss calculation done. Your old boiler is most likely oversized for your home.
