Your best bet is to go to a auto recycler(junkyard) and get another dipstick. Otherwise, the only way to be sure you have the right amount in would be to drain it all out and put back in whatever that motor's oil capacity is.

Where would you find the dipstick to the transmission of a 1983 Chevy Caprice?

Generally between the engine and firewall, on the passenger side. For a 1980's Chevy, look for a round, closed metal loop low and near the distributor (again, on the back of the motor). The oil dipstick generally had a tee handle or an open metal loop on the driver's side of the engine.

On a motor 4- bolt or 2-bolt refers to how many bolts are on the main cap what holds the crack. when it comes down to it if your not putting a supercharger on the motor or making to a performers engine, you don't really need a 4-bolt main An 89 would probably have the dipstick below #6. It would most likely be a 4 bolt main, but not guaranteed.

It has a removable electrical plug attached to it and is held in place with two small screws.

Why does my Chevy 350 have water in the oil?

It would depend on a few factors. If it has been sitting, and there is only a small amount, it could be condensation. If this a daily vehicle, and the dipstick comes out white, because of the mixture between the two, then you have a blown motor. Winter time, is when this is most common. Low anti freeze is usually to blame. The water in the motor freezes, expands, and cracks the block, or heads.
