Sometimes when I flush the toilet it will drain but then no noise.
When I pop the cover to the tank there is no water coming from the
little hose into the cylinder that I guess goes into the tank.
Sometimes it will eventually start flowing and sometimes it will flow
a little bit at a time making the toilet take awhile to fill. One
night every toilet in the house (4 of them) was like this. Turning the
main water off then back on helped a little. While this was going on
the water coming out of faucets appeared fine. All the internals to
all toilet were replaced a few years ago so they shouldn't be bad
already. Another thing to throw out there is my whole house was
replumbed with copper a couple years ago to get rid of poly.

Where are the feed lines in relation to the outside walls? Has it been
very cold lately?
I had this happen once before and it turned out my feed line had been
run around the outside of the vent stack and froze up on very cold
nights. I had to move it and insulate that particular wall better.
No idea about feed lines. I'm in a townhouse end unit. Pretty sure the
feed lines are in the middle of the house except the main line.
It has been cold recently but when it happened before I don't believe
it was cold at all. Past few days it has been 60 degrees or so.
Main water is open all the way but slightly backed off. I assume
plumbing express that specializes in replumbs for poly but in correct
pipe size but who knows.
If water pressure is low, been meaning to check it, is that the water

You said that the non-toilet water faucets were fine, and all the
toilet mechanisms were replaced at about the same time.
Maybe you have minerals in the water that are affecting the
mechanisms? This will limit water flow, and cause the operation of
the valve to be intermittent.
this may be a stretch...but its worth checking..
I have seen people overtighten the nut on the supply
lines so hard, that the rubber squishes into and plugs the
line. they have rubber in them, and only need to be
snugged up, not tightened
