    We had a flood in houston, tx and my car won't start either but at least it attempts to fire but not enough power. Everything still works.

Drain all the fuel out of your vehicle. Remove the air filter and check to make sure water did not get into the fuel injection system. If you did you will also need to drain your oil and replace that also. Last check your tranny and make sure not water is in there.

I have a lincoln town car 2001. The car only has 68,ooo miles. I drove through some water last week on my way home during the tropical storm(Isaac). The car then started making a loud noise. I had it towed...

if had driven threw a large amount of water and hydro locked the engine yes you could have damaged the heads but also the connecting rods could be bent having such low miles on the car i would not but a engine with so many miles on it if you have full coverage on the car call your insurance company and see if it is covered a deductable is cheaper then a engine and a rebuilt engine would be a option

Operation of the braking system and the engine are two (2) different issues. I'd suggest checking the level and condition of your engine oil to see if it's adequate or burnt. You may also need to check to see if you have experienced a failure of your timing belt. The condition of the timing belt deteriorates with age and mileage, and usually needs to be replaced at bout 90-110,000 miles. Failure of the timing belt can cause a major engine failure (which may or may not be repairable). The braking systen depends upon proper operation of the master cylinder which operates effectively only when the engine runs properly. You should check the fluid level in you resevoir on the master cylinder. The fluid should almost completely fill the resevoir and should be clear (although it may have a yellow tint). The braking system will not prevent the engine from starting, so it's best to start with the engine. Check condition of the battery. Any battery over 6 years old should likely be changed (but not until you know the engine hasn't been damaged). Jump the car from another vehicle or large battery charger. Listen to hear if the starter has engaged (a grinding sound). Then see if the engine cranks.

Tough to diagnose at a distance without knowing what maintenance has already been performed and how many miles are on the vehicle. If you are not mechanically inclined, this may be a good time to find a friend who is and/or a reputable mechanic.

Hope this helps.
