Sounds like just a random occurrence, It's a good sound engine!!
No check engine light. No noticeable loss of power. Started making ticking noise when idling and maybe what you call a loud cackling noise between shift changes or when engine is revved and let off gas like in stop go traffic. All fluids at proper levels. Nothing unusual on dash display. Did sound like it was coming from the right but obviously that's where engine is located per drivers seat.
I may have caught it early before blew engine up. Who knows.
I've been a chevy man my whole life. This is my first ford. Not impressed and uneasy about all this.
