Two things spring to mind.

1. Are you sure that the system doesn't have an air lock?
2. Has the removal of the heater reduced the systems capacity to cool the engine?

Does a 2005 dodge diesel have a in-line fuel filter on the fuel line

Diesel injection equipment requires a high degree of precision to reliably work at such high pressures and give a long life and the fuel must have a similar high degree of precision. The fuel must be free of water and other contaminants and particles, therefore most diesel systems include a prefilter, a sedimenter and a very good main filter.
Heavy duty filtration can have a prefilter, at least two main filters and and two sedimenters.

A diesel system does have an inline filter but not in the typical way of petrol engines. The inline filter of a diesel is generally a fairly large replaceable element filter usually situated in the engine compartment, usually incorporates a sediment bowl and often includes a water detector and sometimes a heater.

Squeeling sound and lower pressure from gas water heater

Probably the factory-installed heat trap nipples are clogged.
Open following links.
Noisy whistling and humming and low pressure are common problem with heat trap nipples and inserts from factory.
Replace heat-trap nipples with pex-lined nipples, or remove heat trap inserts with screwdriver or needle nose... careful not to break insert so it falls into tank ... which can then get lodged in hot water line elbow or under-sink shut off.
Factory-installed heat traps are part of overall strategy so manufactures can claim more efficient water heaters, without requiring customers to any thinking.
Other strategies include foam insulation instead of fiberglass (so that wires cannot be replaced on electric units), reducing factory-set temperature from previous 130-135 to 100-120, and re-estimating downward the hot water use for average family.
So some of the strategies are useful, while others problematic or imaginary.
Call manufacturer to pay-for or provide new pex-line nipples. Warranty for fist year covers Labor and parts, and after 1st year, warranty covers parts
Save $10 a month in future replacement costs: maintain water heater so it lasts longer:

On my diesel DZ-4108 I changed all of the batteries and the hour and minuet hands are working, but the digital display is not working the batteries are brand new but on digital display what can I do?

I just figured this out. When you replace the batteries, there's the white plastic cover secured with two screws. Remove them and you'll see an area with two exposed 'pads' that says 'reset'. Simply touch them together with a paperclip, screwdriver or whatever and the watch starts right up. :)

Leaking antifreeze inside car. i want to bypass heater core if could until we can get it fixed. how do i do it?

Trace the 2 water hoses going into the firewall from the engine. Remove 1 and measure the inside diameter, most but not all GM heater hose is 1/2 inch. Go to the hardware store and get a plastic 90 degree plumbing elbow the same size and a couple screw hose clamps. Remove the heater hose from the firewall and connect them to the elbow with the hose clamps. Make sure they can't rub on the exhaust manifold and top up the rad and you are good. Hope this helps.

The elbow is broken and the air from the hot water tank is leaked

Any exhaust air coming from the gas water heater is potentionally life threating. I would get it fixed. Do you have a CO2 meter close by the water heater? If it is leaking air back into the house that has CO2, after a certain amount the alarm will go off. If you dont have one get one. A must have with gas appliances.

Diesel mixed with oil in the sump

You run again the generator but before running, check & mark the oil level. Then stop the generator & wait until the oil settle to the bottom of oil pan. Check the oil level again & if the oil level is higher than the marking before that's means you have an engine gasket leak.You need to replace that gasket.
