toliet fill valve not working

Heres whats going on , flush the toliet an it just trickles out the fill valve, its a ole fluid master valve . I removed the top of the fill valve an turned the water off an on with a cup over the valve , to try an flush any trash outta the line , has very good water pressure.

Put the top of the valve back on an it worked great for like 4-5 flushes, an then goes back to the trickle again ,, All total now I have done this like 20 times now, It seems if I turn off the watyer supply an then turn it back on the vale works ok , but otherwise it just sits there..

Any idea what may be wrong do I need to replace the fill valve ???, or have I missed something ???

Any help would be greaty appericited, Thank You ,,,,,, JIM

I think for the $6 I would replace it with a new Fluidmaster 400A fill valve.

i agree but if you are on a budjet there is a gasket you can replace but its easier to replace the whole thing
