If it isn't new it may need the transition piece replace between the tank and the bowl, and then you my need to put in a new flapper, and then the fill mechanism may also need to be replaced. So if it leaks between the bowl and the tank and the flapper doesn't hold back the water, and the fill tube doesn't function...you can get all these 3 things in an inexpensive kit

$20 from Lowes
 
It's a tiny ad only because the water is so cold.
