Unless the groves in your siding are deep I would stay away from fillers but would use a good acrylic siliconized caulk to fill them in. Do not use spackling under any terms to fill in these bad spots as it will not hold up. If they are deep you can use a wood filler designed for exterior use and your local paint store can help you with this as you are picking up you primer and finish.

If your house has a solid stain on it be sure to use an acrylic latex solid stain as a finish over the primer. This will give you the longest lasting job and will be more resistant to peeling, fading and mildew. You have washed your house to remove dirt and mildew haven't you?
