Hi Eddie,

That would depend on how high the flood water was and how long the vehicle was in water.

First thing is to disconnec the battery and tow it to dry ground.
Dry out what ever components that has been soaked in water.
Check that water has not entered the engine cylinders and transmission, if yes, it is going to be costly.

If water had gotten into the cabin, ensure the carpets and internal components are dried out.
