It is important to clean an asphalt driveway thoroughly, using a push-broom and soap-and-water solution in any area where there has been a driveway repair. Try using laundry detergent and a stiff-bristle brush. If engine oil has leaked onto the driveway, use a special cleaner just for that.

To fill a driveway crack, patch it with a caulk-like compound that is available at many home improvement stores. Just add a bead of the compound into the crack and smooth it out with a putty knife.
