75k miles is pretty solid if I may say so myself, that seems like a timeframe of when it should be replaced anyways. It could just be the rubber seal and not the pump itself. It's also badass that...

I wouldn't go as far as saying head gasket quite yet. Squeezing the hoses won't tell you if it's bad or not, all it will tell you is if there is coolant in the tube or not. But it's something down...

The golden question I need answered is: Can I swap a GM AUTO for my ZF without coding or wiring? Does it bolt directly? ALSO, would the Z3 transmission fit?

It does. With that being said, I think it's safe to say I should just pickup a new transmission online if I can for that price. And then just pay to swap it.
