    I never had the urge to turn on the heater because here in Indonesia the weather outside is usually around 30ish C on daylight so AC is always necessary.

    What ever it is, it's not natural. If it's a "Rubbery" substance, see if you can screw a wood work drill bit into it by hand, and keep a vacuum cleaner going beside it while you are at it. That should get it out.

    If that's the heater circuit and you never use it just leave it?

    It maybe that the heater is stuck on hot, so a previous owner blocked it given where you live. If you never need heat, leave alone.

    On most cars the heater unit is situated inside and up behind the dash board, if the heater matrix leaks it drips water in side the heater casing and eventually fills and over flows onto the carpet, hence wet carpet ;)

    Before you do that run some water into the rubber hose it attaches to. See if water come out the radiator (with the cap off). Also check you don't get wet carpets.

    Guys, I got another problem.. the car was running completely fine literally minutes ago, I took it for drive after completing my coolant flush, went to refuel, and it suddenly hesitate and began to sound like an old V8.. :D
    its shaking like crazy and act like the engine is about to die, I popped the hood, I see nothing unusual besides the machine is shaking like theres no tomorrow and went to the back and see white smoke, not too thick, but a lot.

    And now Im at the side of the street, raining, and clueless.. is this somethig I can fix or I should just tow this thing somewhere

    Heres the video

    Sorry to hear that.
    Did the shaking start after you put some fuel in it.?
    On your test drive, were you keeping an eye on the temperature needle?
    To be on the safe side, it is advisable to get it towed to wherever you want.

    No, it actually started before I got to the gas station, but maybe it was my fuel, because it is running very low

    That looks like lot of water in the oil.
    Pop outcall the spark plugs and compare them. You should find one that's considerably cleaner than the rest.

    could it not be then that the thing blocking the cooling pipe is something like radweld and the fact you just flushed the coolant and found this problem means you dislodged some of that radweld.

    Sometimes after a coolant flush you can get air locks in the pipes. After running the engine the water level goes down as the air gets out.
