Asphalt driveway - crack patching, crack filler and then seal

I've attached a few photos of my driveway
there are areas that need both patchwork and also crack filler - i plan to use QPR 50lbs asphalt patch https://www.lowes.com/pd/QPR-50-lb-A...-Patch/3656652

and also black jack speed fill with caulk gun for <1/2" cracks
https://www.lowes.com/pd/BLACK-JACK-...-Patch/3027301

And then either hire someone to seal it or consider DIYing that as well.

What do you all think?

In addition, how long after the patchwork and filler are used should I be sealing?

Thank you !

No pictures, the cold patch cant be used in shallow areas that dont have well defined walls to hold the material, it will simply squish down and out.

Crack filler is good to go once it has cured.

If you seal, dont skimp on the material, you get what you pay and it takes as much effort to apply the cheap krap as it does the good!

ugh, how do I remove photos I uploaded from a previous post, so that I can add some of the driveway photos here? It keep stating I've 'exceeded my allowed amount - but I'm only trying to post small megabyte photos. Thanks

Thanks... trying to get the photos uploaded.
Any particular sealer you suggest? I'm in NJ-northeast.

Skip the good, better, and go for best, it's all in the amount of coal tar sealants and emulsifiers they put in the pail!
