Intake for engine air filter for most vehicles are localocated in fender wells. You probably just put water into your engine where its not supposed to go. In my experience your paper air filter got wet and now will not let enough air to pass through it. If you have sucked water into your intake then you might want to take it to a mechanic. Off the record, pull the filter when your not in a puddle. Try cranking a little and if its not struggling you might have gotten lucky. Dry what you can and try to start it. Make take a few extra turns of the key but if it starts you should replace airfilter and get an oil change to remove excess water. If not lucky your engine will not crank because engine full of water and water does not compress in an engine. I have helped people on side of road/street river and helped them start car and drive away. If your stuck and have some tools you can pull plugs crank engine without the plugs in and water shoots out of plugs. Dry plugs and reinstall. Try to crank without wet filter and you might get lucky. All of this is a suggestion that I have personally recommend if you can't get proper help and are in a pinch. macgyver mechanics are not recommended but can save your behind when your in a grind.

Sputtered out and now it won't stay running; dies when put in gear.

Mass air flow , crank sensor . I wouldn't discount anything . Having a scan tool that can view engine sensor data would be a great help too , testing fuel pressure and flow and back pressure test the exhaust .

1994 eagle talon sumerged in water

I drove my 95 Talon into flood water too, so bad it came in the doors and everything. It took a night of effort but she finally started back up. Make sure you dry out your air filter and that there is no water in your intake parts or throttle body that is getting sucked into the engine. Press accelerator to the floor and hold it there, crank the engine until she spits that **** out and starts. I've helped a few people out with this and always came back with a running car in the end.

I have a 1999 buick regal ls dying.

I have a 99 Buick Regal and it too dies out, but only when I use my turn signals. Sometimes, when trying to start the car...the dash lights would flicker and you can hear some sort of electrical ticking sound. As of today, my car will not start (5/24/09) it hadn't turned over since yesterday. After a process of elimination and searching the net, I think I need a new ignition switch. You may need one as well.
