Your oil filter is probably an external aluminum cannister type with a black cap that unscrews to pull out the cartridge. If you look you'll see it's made by Damlier-Chrysler. The cartridges and readily available at most any auto parts store. I'm certain the air filter is also. Pull it and get a part number.
A tip on that oil filter .... unscrew the black cap and pull it out "straight-up". The cannister is usually mounted at a slight angle. Wedge the element & cap straight up in the cannister and allow to drain for a few minutes. You'll avoid a lot of dripping oil mess this way.
