Is the tank cracked or is it leaking from the bolts that go through the bottom? If the bolts are leaking shut the water off, Should have a shut off valve behind the toilet, If not possible around your house. Mine is out by the road where the water meter guy can check it. But shut the water off and put 2 new bolts and gaskets through the toilet. Very cheap fix. under $4.00 USD

Your vent stack may be clogged. The pipe that goes up to the roof. Let's air into sewer pipes when you flush. A birds nest or something can do it.

The problem may be the flapper that seals between the tank and bowl is leaking or the overflow pipe may have a crack in it. I wouled replace the flapper first and check the overflow pipe for cracks.
Hope this helps.

Make sure the water valve to the toilet is actually letting water into the fill valve. Turn off valve, remove from fill valve, run water into a pan to see pressure and confirm water flow. If water flow and pressure good, replace the fill valve.

Try using one of these A product called Kaboom Bowel Blaster and let it sit in the bowl for a while, then brush clean. This worked for me when others failed. You can try muriatic acid as a toilet bowl cleaner.Again let it sit for a while then brush and flush available from places like Home depot.Sometimes the toilets are not glazed as well as they should be you might call it a defect I call it poor quality control.

Probably a mineral buildup. Pour a bucket of water into the bowl so that the bowl flushes but does not refill with water. In other words you want as little water in the bowl as possible so it wont dilute the cleaner. Use an acid cleaner like lime away in the bowl. Let it set for several hours or over night,. then scrub with toilet brush. Lime away is fairly safe but try not to splash it on your clothes or yourself. Wash it away if you do.
You may have to repeat to finish the job.

I think it's not a wise decision to clean a toilet fill valve, rather than buy a new toilet fill valve and replace with the old one.

Your theory may be correct. I have found that replacement flappers vary widely in quality and lifespan.
