Could this be a clogged vent line?

Agreed. It sounds like you have a clogged vent line. If it functions properly when you hold the flush pedal down, then that is how you're introducing air to the system. See if there is an inline vent filter installed. This sometimes happens if the holding tak is overfilled and fills the filter with fluid. Sometimes a pest, like bee/wasps make a nest in the line.
