Slow draining sink


My bathroom sink drains extremely slowly. I have had the drain apart and cleaned out and it still won't drain proberly. The way my bathroom is set up is all along one wall. Bathtub, sink, stack then toilet. The bathtub drains perfectly but the sink dose not. Sink it connected to the stack above the tub drain. I don't know if that has anything to do with it. Any ideas?

Does this drain line have a vent? (tie back to the stack)

You may have a blockage past the trap. If you have a drill you can purchase a snake at HD that attaches onto your drill.

Take the drain apart and run the snake from there.

I snaked it to the stack and it didn't help. I am not sure if the drain line has a vent.
