Just looking for any advice or tips on changing it myself and where is recommended to purchase the replacement or where to stay away from on parts.

That is one of the signs of a fuel pump on it's way out with these magnums atleast. If you hook up a fuel pressure gauge the pressure should read 43 PSI =/- 3PSI. Connect the fuel pressure gauge to the fitting on the fuel rail.
