My service engine lite came on right after i filled up with gas

Check the gas cap and make sure it is tight, if cross threaded or the seal is bad the light will kick on. Hope this helps.

1993 Isuzu NPR when taking off transmission shifts good but after bout 1/4 mile downshifts out of overdrive and will not shift into of again until it sits and cools for a little while

Many of todays cars have a mode called Limp Mode. The Motor and Computer talk to each other and if faults are found? The Limp Mode (( Short for Limp on home mode )) will be set in the Computer. Go to your local Auto Zone and ask them to Scan the OBD 2 fault codes with their reader. Or pay the dealer. It may be something really simple. My Check Engine light was on the other day because the Gas Cap was loose. This Scanner told us the problem and we tightened the Gas Cap. After 3 times driving the car with it tight .... The Check Engine light went off.

Drives fine for about 5 miles then starts to lose power then eventually dies. pull over alongside the road, cycle the key about 6 times, then it drives fine for bout 1 mile and does it all over again

This could be due to a fuel system problem, perhaps a clogged fuel filter. Since any debris in your gas tank would be settled to the bottom for the initial startup, the fuel pump picks up clean gas and has no problem supplying the injectors. As you drive, the circulation of the gas from the tank through the filter could cause the filter to plug up with debris, gradually losing power until fuel pressure is not sufficient to keep the car running. Try replacing the fuel filter and running some fuel injector cleaner through with your next fill-up.

I have a 2002 bmw z3 w/20000 miles . occasionally all the cluster pointers i.e. speedometer, fuel,oil pressure fail to actuate when the car is started. it doesn't affect the operation of the car as my wife...

The problem is likely inside the cluster. There are no service parts available for the cluster ... hence BMW telling you that you need a new cluster. i would suggest that you find one on ebay and see if this cures the issue. Note that the coding plug that is plugged into the rear of the cluster will need to be swapped to the new cluster in order for it to read your cars info.
