ok, so the original warranty is void, but the repair work may have a warranty, usually only a year though, for flooded furnaces they replace everything mechanical or electrical
that the water touched (if reputable), even if the parts work, because it's a fire hazard otherwise, you can't predict what future problems may result from a flooded component (safety shutoffs may not work) big liability problem
You also have to understand that original quote they gave you is mostly labor, which the original warranty doesn't cover anyway, for warranty work usually they tack on a service charge and may require other things be replaced too once they open her up
