Well i make this FX one time long time ago, using the Eye Candy Glass filter, with this basic parameters:

Bevel Width = 0
Highlight Brightness = 0

and playing with the flow speed and the undulation speed. try using with a blur fx too.

it's awesome.

i would use a warping effect with an animated b&w mask to guide it and another mask that would fade out the top of the shimmering effect

wala wala:D

there is a nice tutorial at DVgarage...you have to register (it's free) the effect they use is of the heat shimmer coming out of a pipe, but the steps can be changed for all kinds of uses.
