See if all the little holes under the rim are clear. Sometimes hard water can cause calcium build up. A wire coat hanger will do the trick

If that does not work take a look on this site.

I like to use a pipe cleaner to clean out those little holes.
You have taken the cover off of the tank and watched what's happening while your flushing, right?
