Doing preventative maintenance on an oil heater

I just got marrried and moved in with my wife and her oil heater. She's got a service plan that's $240 a year and covers an annual cleaning and 24hr repair service. We don't have a lot of money and I'm thinking about dropping this insurance and doing the annual cleaning myself. I'm an engineer and generally handy, but I have no experience with oil heaters. I think this one is 10-20 years old. Is it reasonable to think that I could learn how to do the annual cleaning and maintenance myself? If so, how do I learn?
Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

It helps to have all the kits to check them out. But you can do it ok just read up on it.
