driveway resealed, please advice


We recently had our driveway resealed. It looked great for about two months and the oil stains starting coming through showing a darker black (stain). I want to reseal it but would like to stop the bleed through. Is there a product that would seal (oil, transmission fluid, ect.) from coming back through the sealer?

No, there is not a practical method for sealing in the oil stains.

There are cleaners you use before you seal the driveway. You pour them on and scrub them with a stiff bristle brush. Repaeat until it's gone, then seal the asphalt. In the Big boxes it's in the same aisle as the sealers.
