Default Toilet flushing issue

I purchased a house recently and in process of remodeling. I have all new fixtures and toilets in master bath. Sometimes I flush toilet it flushes sine other times it acts stopped up. However the Bathroom sink and bathtub never back up. Occassional when I flush the toilet the sink gurgles. My first thought was drain opener and that seemed to help for a day or so and it seems continuously I am having same issue. Someone told me it could be caused by a bad wax seal so I replaced it however the flange for the toilet is not flush so I need to go under house and make sure that drain is at a 90 degree just need to legthen pipe its tied into.

Anyway It seems weird I can take the toilet off rune the sink wide open the tub wide open and pour water down the toilet flange pipe and nothing seems to back up. As soon as I put the toilet back on the flange its like rolling a dice it may or may not flush and when it does it is intermittent.

Any suggestions would be great.

Do yourself a favor and call a license plumber, you will save time and money. That's my personal suggestion. I'm sure that maybe you'll find a nice guy here to help you with your issue, I know he's reading now and will be answer your question.

Professional plumbers only probably needs to be in bigger letters.

Seems like the solution to your problem is to not reinstall the toilet. Just do your "business" in the hole. Don't have to worry about that pesky wax ring anymore. Aiming is going to be a little bit more difficult though. You might notice an odor, don't worry about that either, you'll get used to it.
