I have a lot of particle filter regenerations. I also increase the oil level in the oil bath. Should the computer be changed by the particle sensor changed?

Are the regenerations completing properly?
Sounds like you have failed regens which causes fuel dilution,might be worth checking the hoses to differential pressure sensor for splits and blockages. Had a Lexus recently where the post dpf pipe was blocked so differential sensor thought DPF was blocked. If all is good change the differential sensor.
Also change oil and filter.

Check your using the correct oil as well when your doing the oil change.
