Default few qustions no start

Alright I just bought a 05 convertable gt it was a flood damage car 36k miles sitting for 4 years.

Does oil ruin bearings when sitting for this long or is that a myth?

Alright ecu tested good it turns over but does not fire where should I start on trying to fix this issue.

Next tranny has some silver looking sludge in it what would cause that? Oil is clean as could be.

Any input is greatly appriecated I know I can't spell don't need any input on my grammar thanks lol

i'd trying to get it to fire using starting fluid. i've had good luck with this on cars that have been sitting. checking for fuel and spark would be next on my list.

also i would assume the gas is no good. maybe disconnect the fuel line and let the pump drain it drain into a bucket?

Depending on how high the water level was, you could have trouble for years to come especially electrics. I'd change everything ignition wise including plugs, wires and coil. Change all the fluids including flushing the transaxle. Since it's turning over, and won't start, check for spark and fuel pressure.
