I would like to know if my wheel bearing can cause my car to not go into park or any other gears
My car has an automatic transmission.
Failed wheel bearings will cause a lot of noise. You also might be able to detect "roughness" if you turn the wheel/tire by hand if the car is on a lift. However, wheel bearing failure will not cause difficulties in shifting. The difficulty in shifting you are reporting could be due to a transmission linkage issue, a transmission fault or, if the gear shift lever is just stuck, could be due to a shift interlock fault or even a failed brake light switch. To have the root cause identified and repaired, the recommended service is a shift diagnostic. If you request that service, the responding certified mechanic will get this resolved for you.
