If water is in the oil then the oil must be drained. If water is in the cylinders the spark plugs need to be removed and the engine cranked over to expel the water. If the vehicle has been in a flood than all fluids need to be changed.

Could it be you want to know how to drain/flush the coolant system?

Usually water in oil means you have a cracked engine block, or a blown head gasket. Have a cylinder leak down test/ compression test/ cooling system pressure test performed to determine exact reason for the water. Otherwise you may be spending big bucks on a ruined engine.
