Well i guess i got the famous oil change tick...

Not happy about this but i see its a very common problem. Some say it goes away after a couple hundred miles then comes back after the next oil change.....some say add a zinc additive to you oil and it quiets down..some say AC compressor and some say alot of other stuff, From what ive heard tho as its not harmful...its a tick tho some im iffy, Those who have taking theres to the dealer have either gotten "its normal dont worry" or " you new motor is finshied being installed" Anyone that can add some in sight here would be great

Not my car but same exact ticking noise go to 1:20

Is that not just metal in the exhaust expanding/contracting? Sound the same as most any car when you shut it off after a drive and the exhaust is cooling.

Same thing happens to me starting at my 30k mile oil change. Went away after about 500 miles. Just did my 35k oil change and it's back again. It doesn't do it much at idle but it does a good amount on low end rpms between around 1000-2500 rpms.

Geez that doesn't sound good. Sounds like maybe the fan is hitting the shroud when it comes on or maybe the fan motor is making the noise. Has to be something to do with the radiator fan since the ticking is only heard when it comes on.

easy enough to check where the noise is coming from

Find a very long screw driver. When the ticking stars just put one end against the fan shroud and the other against your ear. That should tell you exactly where the noise is and if it is the fan motor or something else.

They do sell stethoscopes at Harbor Freight that work better to finding noises. Or get one from the "SNAP ON" truck and pay quadruple.

Sounds like Bad Cam Phasers to me. Wont hurt the car but makes it sound like crap.
Cam Phasers have 3 roll pins holding the parts to it together & the pins tend to shear off.
Even if you replace the phasers ... chances are it will happen again unless you use Cam Phaser Lockouts & that will cause you to lose a slight bit of top end power.
Use the Screwdriver & listen near the front end of the Valve covers to see if the noise is coming from there. If it is...it's the phasers. Some of the ticking is caused by the slack in the timing chain due to bad phasers. Occasionally, the plastic timing chain guide breaks also.
Also...I'm guessing that the 5.0's have the phasers. My 08 4.6 had the same type of noise.
I replaced the phasers but it sounds like the noise is starting to come back again after about a year.

These engines are trying to communicate through morse code. With all of today's technology it would seem possible

Why would oil changes initiate something with cam phasers and other stuff mentioned?

What do the cam phasers do?

Yea that's a pretty weird tick I totally understand why that would worry you. especially if you haven't done anything major to the car and take pretty good care of it.

Just listened to it again on the video and it does sound like a slapping more than a ticking.

OP say's on the video

Fan comes on "TICKING NOISE STARTS"
Fan goes off "TICKING NOISE STOPS"
*************DUH ********************************

I know this is very difficult to find out what is making the noise.
It may be the transmission, or rear differential.
Battery ?
Flux Capacitor?

Anything but fan bearings.

Ha ! Ha ! Ha !

You are 100% correct. It's your Mustang. The noise can be what ever you want it to be.
Sorry I was only trying to help you figure it out.
I'll leave you alone now.

I have Roush axle backs so the noise was loud enough in the car to get past the exhaust sound.

Could be worse. . . I had a similar sound coming from my brand new Maxima at 4,000 miles after its first oil change. I ended up needing to have a new cylinder 1 bearing installed on a brand new car.

Yikes, well I hope that doesn't happen to me. I am very curious what that sound was. Maybe I went through some water with a hot exhaust, I don't know ugh.
