Toilet Gurgles After Flushes

Good afternoon everyone! I'm hoping I could get some help here.

I've got a toilet problem that involves the toilet to gurgle after it flushes. I've never had this problem till recently.

When it comes to "#1's" the toilet flushes normally, but it still gurgles. But when it comes to "#2's" the toilet flushes slowly from then on after the initial flush, which then needs plunging.

I was advised to do the 5 gallon bucket test (dumping 5 gallons of water down the toilet with a piece of toilet paper to flush it) and it seems the water goes down without a problem. I was thinking of trying to auger it myself, but the plumber suggests to replace the toilet altogether. What should I do?

Thank you for the reply. I'll get a quote for that and hopefully i won't end up spending $300 for replacement and installation.

the description you have supplied us with, tells me that most likely all you need to do is auger the toilet.

i agree with plumber dan and find a good plumber

if they want to repair.replace anything get a camera inspection done and be there as they do it and make sure they give you a video of your line so you can show the others that you will be getting bids from and it wont caost the camera inspection fee again
