yup im at another project, they never end..i got a concrete driveway, 6 four inch slabs on a slope and the gap between them has widened and some are breaking away. instead of a total repair i was wondering what could buy me a few years..the biggest prob is one near the foundation has a gap from the drain on the adjacent one and has dropped and runoff is creeping into the garage just a bit..its dropped prob 2 inches here.. can i fill the gaps or cracks, and resurface to build it up for runoff purpose. there isnt car traffic here. thanks folks, you always have advice for my many projects

Lowes had a caulking sealer in a tube that I used several years ago at my garage entrance and it is still is holding up, it was only a settling crack about 1/2 in wide but about 6 ft long. Don't know if it would work in your scenario or not...

I would check out Sika brand products, and find something that seems like it would work for you....

I have fixed many cracks, and your best option for a few years is forget the caulk and the sealant. THEY ARE CRAP!!!
You are from the burgh, I am sure you are familiar with the steel building, I have fixed many cracks on the steel plaza. You want to get a masonry wheel for either a grinder or circular saw, and cut the concrete back to where you have 8" to a foot to fill, then chip that out with a chipping hammer. you can rent them fairly cheap at HD. leave some rough edges on either side, and paint with a concrete boding agent (follow directions on bottle). cut some mesh to fit in the hole, and pour concrete into said hole. make sure you shopvac the hole before you paint

you will not be able to resurface, that will crack and chip away in a blink of an eye. your best bet for that slab is to jack hammer out an repour it
