Have you checked to make sure the engine does not have water in it? The starter might be bad. Clean all the battery connections and give it another try. Get the code read and let us know what it says.
No oil is clean like I said everything works already took the parts off,starter ,alternator,battery and have them checked and place them back however I'll try to check for the code (only thing I'm missing to do) Car won't click or turn over whatsoever .
I suspect the computer is ruined. Flooded cars are bad news. What does your insurance company have to say about it? If they will give you a decent settlement I would dump the car as flooded cars are nothing but trouble.
